JOHN HOWARD PAYNE, DRAMATIST, POET, ACTOR, AND AUTHOR OF HOME, SWEET HOME! HIS LIFE AND WRITINGS.

Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1885. Large octavo. Heavily gilt decorated cloth. Portrait, folding facsimile. Lower edge dust marked, otherwise fine and bright in lightly edgeworn and faintly nicked example of the printed dust jacket. Item #WRCLIT70359

Second, revised edition, following the first edition of 1875. This is BAL's variant A (no priority), with all edges trimmed. A modest Connecticut remainder of this title - in jacket - distributed into the trade in the 1970s, mitigates against it being as uncommon in dust jacket as one might otherwise expect. TANSELLE 85.14. BAL 15808.
