dc.description.abstractAgain, I thought I was picking up a good second copy of a book where my first copy may have been in only fair condition. And this book is very close to one that I have listed under the same title and publisher in 1885. As I read through that description, I began to realize that this book is different. First, it lists its publication date as 1883, not 1885. Secondly, it has a red cover. I believe that a difference like the color of the cover may be attributable to what the publisher happened to have in stock that day. Two other differences merit mention. The Finis page promised in the list of illustrations does occur here as it had not there. And this book has as its frontispiece The Mastiff and the Cur, not The Blind and the Lame. See my further comments on that 1885 edition. I first found this book in July, 2003 at the Old Tampa Book Company. Now I have found this superior copy from Ted Lesher. It has been in his family for many years.en_US
