This book was limited to 50 copies; it is illustrated throughout with full-page steel engraving plates. Additionally, this copy was the former property of author William Stone. Stone's bookplate appears on the front inner board, and pasted down to the front endpaper is a letter to Stone from the book's author, Jeptha Simms, dated Sept. 26, 1881.

The letter appears to have torn at one of the folds, and a previous owner has repaired it with tape. 297 pages, including index; approx. 6"x9".. By Author. Limited. Hard Cover.
