Here is a nice antique 1st edition book that is part of the Uncle Remus series by Joel Chandler Harris for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself! This book is in very good shape for being ove 125 years old.
The book is entitled, "Balaam and His Master and Other Sketches and Stories". This book was issued in 1891. So, first edition, cannot say if first printing. The book was written by Joel Chandler Harris. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company of Boston/New York.
The book has light tan hardcovers with the title and author name impressed in dark brown on the front cover and spine. Has the previous owner's names of Mary Merryman in ink and Frederic Willets Wright as a label in the front of the book, not on title page.
The book is still well bound together. There is no musty or mildewy smell to the book. Sopme minor spotting in the book in places. The cover over the spine is still there. Book is leaning a little over on the spine, so not square.
The book is 7.25" tall, by 5" across, by 1-1/8" wide. The book is 293 pages in length.
