Mother Goose for Grown Folks - A Christmas Reading

Billings. New York: Rudd & Carleton 1860. First Edition. iv, 111, [2], 6 pages (the last 8 advertisements). Original thin brown cloth backed paper blindstamped in a waved pattern and with titles stamped in copper gilt on the front panel. Endpapers in glazed blue/purple paper. Frontispiece is an engraving signed in the illustration by Andrew-Filner. An exceptionally clean example of a book whose covers (usually found in a more robust pebbled cloth) have remarkably little wear. Very light wear to the extremities, noting a small spot lower right that has worn through showing the boards (and showing just how fragile this board covering is). Paper is lightly toned color throughout. Near Fine. Cloth. [23975]
