Published 1880, New York by Frank Leslie's Publishing House.

A scarce work, Leslie's of this era are today uncommon/ score.
Period 1/2 leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & title lettering.
Book is over 140 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, leather rubbed but still supple, joints slightly scuffed with short splitting at joint ends (covers still firmly attached), remains overall sound and attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this scarce and strongly pictorial antique book survives.
