The Brownies and Other Tales, Ewing, Juliana Horatio
20 Ewing, Juliana Horatio The Brownies and Other Tales
New York Hurst & Co. 1870 Softcover Good with no dust jacket 
Light tan wraps with black titles. Much wear and chipping along edges and corners. Spine is about half gone but book still seems securely together and is square. Wraps are toned and becoming brittle. Relatively remarkable condition for such a cheaply printed book -- and a children's book to boot. ; The Universal Library; Vol. 163; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 194 pages; The only date is 1870 on the Dedication page. However, Hurst was a reprint house, so I would guess that this copy dates from the 1890's to the 1900's.
