By Brown, Frances

Scarce early Christmas gift book. Original brown cloth, blindstamped and gilt titled/illustrated spine binding with AEG and plain green end papers. Gift inscription (Dec. 25th, 1860) from a man to a child. F. Brown edited this old tome and eluded to there being a follow-up book in 1861 but none surfaced. No examples exist online other than copies of text on microfilm at several places. Not surprising as she had only enough money (from an anonymous donor from Maine) to have very few printed. . And Inscribed. Hard Cover. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. Bagged & Boarded for Posterity.
