About This Item

This is one of the rare "Large Paper" printings, published in 1886, marked #75 of 100. The boards are in very good condition with some minor soiling and bumps to corners. The two black 'B's' on the spine have faded. There is a ribbed spine. Owner's bookplate on FEP. Endpapers have some browning with age, otherwise the pages are bright and clean. Nineteen black and white illustrations throughout.

All proceeds benefit The Friends of the San Anselmo Library.
