Except for its cover, this little (4¼ x 6¼) book is identical with the Cowperthwait edition of 1850. Even the last word of the index on 358 has a similarly fractured letter h so that it misses its upper portion. The cover and spine are of blue cloth, with a gold embossed picture of hare, tortoise, and bespectacled fox on the cover. The spine has images of FS and FG in embossed gold. Interiorly this is a cleaner copy than my copy of the 1850 Cowperthwait edition. See my comments there.
