About This Item

Philadelphia, PA: The John C. Winston Company. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. c1893. Reprint Edition. Cloth. An attractive copy in publisher's pictorial cloth boards in Very Good+ condition, lightly soiled boards and tanned leaves, small tear to front pastedown in Very Good- pictorial dust-jacket with a couple of chips, mainly at spine ends. Reprinted by the John C. Winston Company in the early 20th century ; Frank in the Woodswas one of a number of adventure stories published by Charleston Austin Fosdick, better known by his nom de plume Harry Castlemon. This novel was originally published in 1865, but this edition dates from the early twentieth century, probably prior to the 1930s. Castlemon's books were quite popular in their day and often went through numerous reprintings; Frank and Archie; 12mo; [i-iv] v-vi, 7-256 pages; Book dates from the early twentieth century, no earlier than 1904 based on the address of the publisher from the dust-jacket, and no later than 1960, the date that the John C. Winston Company merged with Holt, Reinhart, and Winston. Either way this is a reprint and probably not incredibly valuable. The John C. Winston Company was founded in 1884 and expanded rapidly during its first two decades of operation, moving offices an average of every five years. Its office at 1006-1016 Arch Street, which is today occupied by luxury condos, opened in summer 1904. See the article at: http: //hiddencityphila.org/2012/09/this-is-a-publishing-house/ .
