It is of special interest because it has a unique cover which reads -- Christmas Queenwood College Second First Class Prize 1885. This copy appears to have been awarded to an outstanding student at Queenwood College, a Ladies College in East Sussex, England. This is still the 1885 First Edition and not the more common 1886 issue, just in a special cover. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 483 pages
