This book is from a series of books done for young adults. It is the "Rollo" series. This series was written by Jacob Abbot. The copyright information is "New York, Sheldon & Company, Publishers - 498 & 500 Broadway - 1869." The pictures are engravings and are listed in the front of the book. This book is 218 pages. It is a hard back. There is no dust jacket. The cover is dark green with gold gilt (most is gone but can be seen on the spine) and impressed decorations. This book is 6-3/4" tall x 4-1/2" wide x 5/8" deep.
This book is over 100 years old!! It has some scuffs to the cover. The first page has a corner cut off. The 2 liner pages in the back of the book are creased. Some of the pages were not trimmed evenly during manufacture. This is quite an unusual series. I also have "Rollo on the Rhine" in my store.
