Boston: Dana Estes & Company (Estes and Lauriat), (1898). Hardcover. First Edition. All eight full page black and white illustrations by Shute remain, some with foxing. Very good in the original red cloth boards with illustration and white title to front cover. White spine titling has chipped away, but embossed title remains. Dampstain to edge of rear board and small spot to spine. Minor wear to hinges, spine ends, corners, and edges of boards. Occasional spots of foxing, soiling, and browning to interior. It appears this book was once used to aid in the drying of flowers, and some browning from this process remains. Previous ownership stamp to front pastedown. An attractive book despite noted condition flaws. 173 pages. CHILD/071819. Very Good.
