Milwaukee: Excelsior Publishing Company, 1890. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition Thus, a Salesman's Sample/order book. Brown cloth binding with fancy blindstamped cover. Illustrations in black and white and color. Attached to the front paste-down are two special bindings that were offered (perhaps not as popular; Quercus has never encountered them). In the rear are publisher's adverts and the ledger for orders (alas, all blank!). There is no publication location, but per WorlCat, Excelsior was located in Milwaukee. A very interesting piece of historical context, scarce, but showing its age. Bumped, a bit cocked, somewhat loose but holding. No dustjacket. That would be a special order! Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Salesman's Dummy. First Edition.
