CURTIS, George William. Prue and I
New York: Dix, Edwards, 1856. First Edition. First edition (BAL 4270, binding variant A). AUTOGRAPHED SIGNED LETTER pasted on rear pastedown to a D.W. Fiske (possibly a fellow Cornell professor elected to professorship in the same year as Curtis). Good plus in publisher's slate cloth with wear to corners and slight loss of cloth at the top of the spine with rubbing, tasteful former owner bookplate; tear to front endpaper which curiously partially reveals handwriting underneath. A desirable copy given the provenance. Very good. Hardcover.
