Editorial: New York: J. B. Ford and Company, 1875

Edición: 1st Edition
Hard Cover. Very Good/No Dustjacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 185 pages. A rarely seen, very elusive title by this author, a children's book with 15 stories about different animals. Includes 16 engravings all depicting animals from the stories. Likely a first edition, though the copyright date is 1874 and the title page states 1875. The book is fully bound in sturdy blue cloth-covered boards with beveled edges. The front board is elaborately decorated with intricate stamped gilt lettering and stamped gilt animal portraits. The spine is lettered and decorated in stamped gilt. All exterior page edges are gilt. This is a solid copy showing only brief, occasional and minor spots of wear to the cloth at the extremeties, some rubbing and light soil to the rear board, and a front free endpaper that has been scissored neatly out leaving only about an inch of stub behind along the gutter. The book stands perfectly straight, and is extremely firm and tight in its binding, with no other pages loose, missing, folded or torn. The hinges are sound and undamaged, the corner tips, though lightly worn, are unbumped. The pages are of heavy stock and are only faintly age-toned, but all are clean, clear, and unsoiled, and all text and illustrations are sharp and very legible. There is no writing, underlining, highlighting or markings of any kind in the book. NOT ex-library. The cloth binding shows wear at the top and bottom of the spine, but the great balance of the cloth, especially the lovely front board, is without any wear at all. The gilt lettering and decorations stamped on the front board are clean, clear, unrubbed and bright, and the gilt page edges are amazingly clean and shine nicely. A heavy, well-made book, and nice copy of a true collector's item. N° de ref. de la librería 3304
