Hartford: American Publishing Company, 1897.
First Edition. 3/4 Leather. Near Fine. Item #033005
3/4 Contemporary Leather - this is not the "Publisher's Morocco" noted by Blanck, but may be, and probably is, an unrecorded leather binding for this issue. We've compared it to two other publisher's leather bindings (neither recorded by Blanck) for the first edition of Following the Equator and it is very similar though not a match, but we suspect there are others. There is a binder's ticket at rear (The Case Lockwood and Brainard Company, Hartford) . In any case, a lovely contemporary binding of the First Edition (Blanck 3451) with single publisher noted, "11" on page 161, etc. An unusually nice copy in morocco over marbled boards in a custom cloth slipcase with marbled sides. Slight shelfwear else fine. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2 lbs 0 oz. Category: Fiction; Antiquarian & Rare; Inventory No: 033005.
