1 Harte, Francis Bret The Luck of Roaring Camp and Other Sketches
Boston Fields, Osgood & Co. 1871 Cloth 
Good+ in the publisher's pebbled maroon cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt; both the front and rear boards are blind-ruled. Chocolate-brown endpapers. 256pps. 2nd edition, with "Brown of Calaveras" added. There is modest rubbing to the board-edges and the spine is a bit sunned. There is, also, an 1" split at the top of the rear joint, likely testament to insect damage. Internally, the ffep has become detached (it is laid in) and has a chip in its upper corner. The original owner's signature, dated Feb. 1871, is near the top of the title-page. The binding is a bit brittle, though sound. The text is clean and bright, overall, with only the light and sporadic instance of foxing. A flawed, though -- at the least -- a nice reading copy of this old volume of stories and sketches.
