Hartford: Silas Andrus, 1824. The Anglo-Irish novelist and playwright Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774) passed on in the same year this history first came out. Quercus believes this to be the First American Edition, which is uncommon. This is a Very Good copy, in rather delicate condition, but holding well. Full calf leather binding; seven rules and a red label on the spine, all gilt. Much better condition than usually seen; minor bumping, and with a small gouge on the front cover. The text is clean; 316 pages; paper is tanning and rather thin, hence the concern. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. First American Edition.. Full-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.
