San Francisco: C.A. Murdock & Co., 1889. First Edition. 12mo. Contemporary pebble-grained cloth boards; floral endpapers; 78pp. Boards slightly faded at edges, and lacking any exterior titling. A Very Good copy. Literary miscellany, comprised of brief extracts and short poetical works by various authors; probably published as a charitable venture. The binding is commercial and clearly contemporary, but devoid of any external indication of the contents (all other copies of this work we have seen were issued in pictorial cloth). Possibly a proof copy or trial binding.
