Nashua NH (Sringfield): Charles T. Gill (John M. Wood), 1848. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fair/ Good -. Presumed first edition, 12mo, printed paper with engraved pictorial over boards. xx + 21-180, with engraved figure of male letter writer (same as cover) verso of fly across form title, with engraved vignettes throughout. Title page identifies John M Wood of Springfield (presumably Massachusetts) 1847 as publisher, so we might assume sheets went from Wood in Mass to Gill in NH who bound the book. Paper over spine perished but hand-strung binding holding firm. Internals about very good. Covers stained and soiled. Still, a charming, (very) unsophisticated copy. (Inventory #: 010787)
