Descripción

284 & [4, ads] pages; Publisher's mauve cloth, pictorially stamped in brown, black and gilt. OCLC: 9220451 Minor wear to the corners, with short splits at the top and bottom half inch portions of the front gutter where it meets the spine, which is slightly faded. An agreeable copy, clean and tight. A copy of some documentary interest, as this is one of the two copies deposited in the Library of Congress for American copyright -- with the oval stamp of the L.C. Copyright Office, dated Aug. 31, 1883, on the title page. The other marks are limited to the small letters "LC" perforated at the foot of the title page (the perforated initials are repeated at the foot of page 99), a pencil note "Copy 2" at the foot of the title, a pencil accession inscription on the verso of the title page (which has been erased and cancelled with an "X" in black ink), two surplus-duplicate stamps from the Library of Congress on the front free endpaper, and minor evidence of the removal of a bookplate from the front paste down. There are no other marks, no spine numbers, card pockets, etc. David Ker was one of the greatest of the late Victorian authors of books for boys, and is remembered for classics including "On the Road to Khiva" and "Cossack and Czar." This title, "From the Hudson to the Neva" seems particularly scarce, and it is a pleasure to offer one of the two official U.S. copyright copies, especially as this title has American interest: the young hero, Jack Jarvis, is plucked from the East River in New York by the crew of an ocean-going vessel who witness his fearless attempt to rescue the drowning dog of a crippled beggar girl. Jack is hired on the spot by the Captain as "the sort a man wants about him," and his adventures begin. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. N° de ref. de la librería 40403
