New York: G. P. Putnam, 1862. First edition. From the "Caxton Edition" of his works (single volume only). Iteresting views on the times illustrated with tissue-protected black-and-white plates. Fairly well preserved book featuring colorful marbled endpapers, and green textured-cloth boards with gilt stamped lettering and ornamentation. Former owner's name and few comments throughout. Altogether about very good with few bumps, some rubbing and a touch of minor loss.
