About This Item

Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1878. Hardcover. Very Good. Augustus Hoppin. Twenty-one fine black-and-white illustrations by Augustus Hoppin augment this handsome little tome, including at frontis, tissue-protected, with fetching initials beginning with the first chapter, and with previous owner's inscriptions, neatly rendered, at blank fly-leaf prior to frontispiece and then again at first page, in pencil and pen, being the book of Mrs. Gertrude Hill Gordon, a New York address in 1879. As is the case with other copies and editions, the spelling at front cover and spine and publisher's ad is Back-Log, but on title page Backlog, and the spine also says Houghton, Osgood & Co. Bound in the original publisher's green cloth, a fetching gilt-illustrated device to front cover, stamped and illustrated also in black. Bumping to spine head and foot, forward cock to spine. Charles Dudley Warner (September 12, 1829 – October 20, 1900) was an American essayist, novelist, and friend of Mark Twain, who was a pall-bearer at his funeral. He was known for his folk-spun humor and essays literary and personal. He is also known for his work as an editor, including of the Hartford Courant and Harper's Weekly. [1], 2-281 pp. Some very light foxing up front, some scattered pencil marking that can be erased. Member, I.O.B.A., C.B.A., and adherent to the highest ethical standards. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
