About this Item

This 1859 First american edition is bound in the original red, publisher's cloth with a slightly faded, gilt decorated spine showing at the top - 2 boys in a rowboat, in the middle - a ship under full sail, and at the bottom - a crocodile in a marsh. A small, paper library label divides the last 2 illustrations. I have chipped away most of the label and no harm shows to the cloth. Slight rubbing to the lower spine and the corners. The clean covers are well attached with no cracking and have good, unworn and unbumped edges. The book is slightly cocked and there is a large library label on the frontpaper, which is the only library marking inside. The 359 pages and 6 illustrations are heavily foxed with additional small stains. The 6 illustrations are under tissue guards. Bookseller Inventory # 12174
