New York: Printed and published by J. & J. Harper, 1834. 376pp. 12mo. Publisher's printed muslin. Early ink gift inscription on pastedown, trace of inevitable minor foxing, and almost negligible soiling to muslin, but for the format, an unusually nice copy. Item #WRCLIT70248
An early impression of the Harper's Family Library (No. XXXVII) Stereotype edition of the Scottish physician and natural philosopher's popular work, with a publisher's note dated Oct. 1834 and 25 pages of questions for teachers appended that did not appear in the earliest impressions. A standout copy in terms of condition.
