Boston: Loring, Publisher, 1870. Although Horatio Alger (1832-1899) attempted adult fiction, he was more comfortable with "Boy's Books. "Ruus and Rose"is the sixth, and last, title in Alger's "Ragged Dick" Series, which began in 1867 and was his first real success. Alger eventually published something like 100 novels, generally following the same format; the story lines are pretty-much interchangeable. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition. Embossed green cloth binding with gilt on the spine (the design has a figure of Dick at its foot). Clean text; 292 pages. Alger ends the book with a plug for his next forthcoming series. Two contemporary owner stamps on the front endpapers. Rubbed at the margins, slightly cocked; small tear at the head of the spine. A generally sound copy of Alger's work, but not for the advanced collector. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.
