Very Good with no dust jacket Hardcover Second book in the Mary Selwyn series which became so popular that two other, smaller books were later written to explain what led Mary to where she began. "Uncle Frank's Mary" (the first book in the series) is also available. Light soil on boards, top edge "dusty". There is a very faint stain along top edge of a few pages in some signatures, but not all, leading me to believe the stain occurred prior to binding. However, there is a stain on rear board that permeates onto rear endpapers. Fade spots on spine.

Publisher: Boston: Loring, 1868..
First Edition, First printing Hardback 12mo, almost 7 inches tall, in green cloth, blind stamped on covers, decorated title and figure on spine in gilt. 296 pages. Alger's illusive first "rags to riches" story. First state with "Fame and Fortune" announced for December and Dick alone on the decorative title page. A nice copy in collectible condition, soundly bound although there is professional repair to a cracked front endpaper. Covers have modest extremity wear with front cover tips showing through and a little fraying to spine ends with a tiny chip at head of spine. The top edge is moderately darkened. The spine title is bright and readable although the figure of Dick is dulled a bit. Previous owner name stamped on front pastedown, and penciled Christmas gift note (1868) on front free endpaper. The front pastedown and the edges of the front free endpaper are significantly toned from glue transfer. There are very occasional light spots of foxing, and a series of twelve pages well into the book show a brown spot from a burn, which lighten as one moves away from the center of those pages, but no burn holes even to the obvious start. Perhaps a long list of faults, but none that significantly diminish the condition of the book. Hardcover Hardcover Very good
