This is Bulfinch's major work published by Tilton the same year (1855) as the acknowledged "true first edition" by Sanborn. Although the title page identifies Tilton as the publisher, the spine is imprinted with the name "Lee & Shepard Boston". If you are confused, so are we; nonetheless, this is a near fine copy of this relatively rare edition. ; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 488 pages View More...
