Abstract
This book represents an earlier edition or printing of a book from 1850 which I have already catalogued. See my comments there. This book is thus now my earliest English edition of Speckter's work. It is in good condition, with an elaborate gold-embossed red-cloth cover. It reads Mary Howitt's Picture & Verse Book, while the spine reads simply Picture & Verse Book. The back cover is similarly imprinted but not embossed. Inscriptions record its having been given as a gift about 1847 and by that recipient again about 1908. Other than Appleton's change of address, I see little that is different in the book. U. Holzer, a Boston bookbinder, worked on the book. There is again a T of C at the book's beginning. At its end, this edition marks its printer, J.F. Trow & Company in NY.
