Arnold, Howard Payson  
The Great Exhibition; With Continental Sketches, Practical and Humorous
Publisher: Hurd and Houghton, 1868 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "..The volume consists of desultory sketches, and essays upon numerous subjects that took my fancy during a long foreign tour. It is not, either in size or significance, 'so deep as a well, or so wide as a chamber door; but 't is enough; 't will serve' my object, certainly, which was quite as much my own entertainment, as that of any possible readers. Having undergone a wide experience during the last two years as European correspondent of the 'Boston Post, ' I have been encouraged by the reception of my letters to offer the public some further results of foreign travel. They have been prepared with care and a genuine desire to aid the popular improvement..Though the leading title of the book is 'The Great Exhibition', I may here say that it does not profess to give a general or complete account of that wonderful industrial pageant. The pages devoted hereto contain but fugitive and random chronicles of some of its more peculiar aspects.." Arnold is actually writing of his experiences abroad and the nature of travel in the 1850s and 1860s. xi + 486 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
