This is a fascinating book in poor condition, lacking even a back cover. Its front cover, a pictorial red board, shows a circular image of FK. At its bottom is Copyright 1888 O.M. Dunham. That name does not show up in my records. The book is basically the book of the same title I have listed under 1895 as published by A.L. Burt. The texts and the T of C are exactly the same. However, this edition removes all the Billinghurst illustrations. For some it substitutes Griset illustrations. This edition adds a list of illustrations on vii. The paper seems thicker and quite brittle. Cassell was usually involved, I believe, in books of higher quality than this.
