DICK SANDS: or the Boy Captain.

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1879. First illustrated edition (but second U.S. edition). 94 illustrations including frontispiece, title page illustration, and map -- 92 are full-page plate engravings by Meyer and Barbant. As in most if not all copies, the illustration listed for page 201, "A halt for the night," is not present. 8vo terra-cotta cloth boards ornately decorated in black and gilt on front and spine; pale yellow endpapers. Covers rubbed, small hole to front endpaper at hinge due to old insect damage, rear hinge paper starting, otherwise good to very good with endpapers faintly foxed, light stain to fore edge and contemporaneous gift inscription on front endpaper. A reasonably attractive copy despite the noted wear.
