1884 – A WONDER-BOOK FOR GIRLS AND BOYS by NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE

1884 – A WONDER-BOOK FOR GIRLS AND BOYS by NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE, illustrations by F. S. CHURCH

Published by Houghton, Mifflin and Co. (1884), Boston, 150pp , an extremely clean, tight and bright copy of this work illustrated by F. S. Church. Do not let the EX-LIB scare you – small paper label on spine, bookplate on front pastedown (1909), embossed stamp on title page and preface, and library pocket on rear pastedown. Of interest is the librarian’s handwritten inscription above the library pocket with the “Condensed Rules”, which states: “Not to be issued to children.” Guess that is one way to make a children’s book last. A nice copy with only light wear to the corners. good+, red decorated cloth, aeg (hardcover) (EX-LIB).
