xxviii, 443 pages. Hardcover: H 22.5cm x L 14.25cm.

Fading to marbled edges; marbled endpapers; dual-purpose bookseller-binder ticket "From | R. Wilson DeSilver, | Bookseller, Stationer and | Book-Binder, | No. 4, South Fourth Street, Philadelphia." at front pastedown's top left corner; foxing throughout; pencil inscription and old ink markings on ffep verso; past owner's antiquarian ink signature at title page's top right. Binding is firm. Else a very good- copy. Probable American signed binding as the DeSilver surname appears as co-publisher for the book and thus he was likely to have some involvement as binder. AMERICAN SIGNED BINDINGS THROUGH 1876 by Willman Spawn and Thomas E. Kinsella does cite a Robert De Silver (or Desilver) as a Philadelphia bookbinder, bookseller, and stationer at various city locations as early as 1801 through 1837. Thomas De Silver, likely a brother of Robert, was also a Philadelphia bookbinder, bookseller, stationer, and playing card manufacturer from 1803-1829 with his son Thomas Desilver, Jr. apparently assuming his father's shop in 1830.
