Dickens - A Child's History Of England RARE 1ST U.S. ED. 2 Vols. 1853 - New York
Franklin Square, New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1853. Please see pictures. Very good condition. A Child's History Of England SCARCE 1ST ED. 2 Vols. 1853 Harper & Brothers . Shipped with USPS Media Mail. 1) Child's History of England Volume 1: England from the Ancient Times, to the Reign of Henry the Fifth. 2) Child's History of England Volume 2: England from the Reign of Henry the Sixth to the Revolution of 1688. 1853.

In our experience this edition (especially the 1853-dated first volume) is scarce in original cloth -- much scarcer than the three-volume English edition. LOWEST PRICE ONLINE!
