A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing -- with general edge wear, first published in England by Hurst and Blackett (in three volumes), in the same year. This American first edition was published in Harper's Franklin Square Library in an ephemeral tabloid newspaper format, a format adopted by Harper to provide inexpensive copies of notable works to the masses. The outer title page was usually discarded first, and then, after reading, buyers would typically discard the entire publication as it was not designed for long-term retention. This copy contains the outer title page (which contains the Publisher, the title, and a list of Craik's works, and is bound in an outer wrapper apparently provided by its prior owner, the St. Paul's Guild Library of Glen Cove, New York. A RARE SURVIVAL OF THIS FIRST AMERICAN EDITION AND QUITE SCARCE (TO RARE) INDEED.
