Boylston Prize Dissertations For the Years 1836 and 1837
Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1838. First Edition. BAL 8732. Publisher’s cloth; (BAL notes several cloth variants, without assigned or assumed priority). This copy doesn’t appear to conform to any of those; in “S” purple cloth, without stamping. Presentation copy, but the top of the front free endpaper is excised removing the recipient’s name, leaving the inscription “...from his friend, O.W. Holmes.” Some foxing and pencil scribbling; good to very good.
