Peter The Great. / Harper's Half-Hour Series
Harper & Brothers, Publishers, New York 1877 - "Mr. Motley's paper on Peter the great originally appeared in the North American Review for October, 1845." This edition, however, is the first known publication in book form, a small, 32mo paperback in original gray wraps, printed in red & black and originally priced "Twenty-five Cents" -- an unusual "very good" fully intact copy with closed half-inch tear to bottom of rear wrap. 106 pp. followed by 14 pp. publisher's catalog including the works of Thackeray, George Eliot, and Anthony Trollope, and three more of "Motley's Histories," including his best-known "The Dutch Republic" and "The United Netherlands," both available in sheep and in half-calf, as well as in cloth, and valuable to this day. This copy reduced from $325. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
