"First American Edition. A Perfect Copy from the London Edition in Three Volumes," issued as BROTHER JONATHAN EXTRA No. XI. The boys at BROTHER JONATHAN competed with the NEW WORLD in order to see who could get out the cheapest, and often largest, pirated reprints of the latest novel hot from the steamships from Britain. OCLC locates only two copies (Yale and Newberry) of this edition, with no ascription of authorship or equivalent British edition. Copies were mailed without wrappers in order to qualify for the reduced postal rate for newspapers.
