New York City: American Tract Society, 1835 [but later]. Very nice copy. 243p. plus publisher's menu, has a tissue-guarded steel-engraved portrait of Mr Page and bound in 6x4 inch cloth boards with panelling blind and spine-title gilt. Find two very old ownership signatures and a mild crack to front hinge at first blank, an else lovely copy that has been furnished with a custom-cut clear acetate jacket. Page was a drunk who lived long enough to reform himself, encourage reform in others, and die in a good deathbed scene.
Copyright page announces transfer of copyright from Hallock to the Society; ergo, a later printing; moreover the style of binding is late, not early, 19thC.
