The colored frontispiece is, as the appraiser noted, what makes this book: it is lovely. This version of the book does not print McLoughlin Bros., New York on the cover, and the title on the spine reads from top to bottom--in contrast to another version of the book listed under the same title, publisher, and year. This version has blotter-like paper that makes good printing of the black-and-white illustrations difficult. The full-page illustrations (from Griset) are the best but, alas, often poorly printed. The varying quality of the illustrations leads me to keep both the Powell's and the Titles copies of this edition in the collection.
