About This Item

Brown cloth lettered in gold on the front panel and the spine panel, all edges gilt. Printed on laid paper. Signed and inscribed by Charles M. Dickinson to Reverend L. R. Dickinson of West Park, NY, on the flyleaf. With the Dickinsons' armorial bookplate on the front pastedown endpaper. The poem that gave the book its title was for many years considered the best written story about the life of a teacher and his scholars and was reprinted in many magazines. A letter by Charles Dickens the younger printed in the note at the end of the book confirms that it was not written by his father, as was previously erroneously believed. Light wear to extremities, short tear to cloth on front panel, fading to spine panel. A very good copy. ; 12mo; Signed by Author.
