A WONDER-BOOK FOR GIRLS AND BOYS. With Engravings by Baker from Designs by Billings.
Ticknor, Reed, and Fields: Boston, 1852. First printing, with the error on page 21. Small octavo. pp vi, (7)-256 + frontispiece and six other plates. Rebound (early 20th century?) in half black morocco and green cloth, spine with five raised bands, rich Art Nouveau-style gilt floral decoration to spine panels, top edges gilt, green cloth endpapers, bound-in ribbon bookmark, two binder's blanks at front and at rear. Some rubbing and flaking to the gilt on the top page edges; one inch closed tear to pp 67-68 neatly repaired (legibility not impaired); else a fine copy, contents very clean and unworn (washed when rebound?), no previous owner's names or bookplates. Clarke A18.1.a. BAL 7606. Peter Parley to Penrod p. 6. Quite a nice copy of this classic American juvenile in a handsome binding, the Greek myths re-told for youngsters, and the great American novelist's first book for children (Tanglewood Tales, 1853, was the sequel).
