Éditeur : Leavitt & Allen, No. 379 Broadway, n.d. [circa 1856 or after]., New York
Date d'édition : 1856
Reliure : Hardcover
Edition : 1st Edition
Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii  10-264 [note: first leaf is a blank], flyleaves at front and rear, five inserted plates with steel engravings, plus decorative presentation page printed in gold, red and green, original decorated red leather, front, spine and rear panels stamped in gold and blind, all edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. First edition. This publisher brought out ten or so annual gift volumes like this, anthologies of verse and fiction with elaborate bindings, a typical American gift book of mid-century. A fair-sized chunk of the contents here are devoted to the cause of temperance. At least one story ("The Drunkard's Dream") has fantastic content. Faxon 325 (issue with publisher's address given on title page). Some rubbing to spine ends, lower corner tips, and along outer joints, but a much better copy than usual of this kind of book, which more often than not are found with considerable binding wear.
