Publisher's red cloth covers with the front cover and spine intricately illustrated and lettered in gilt and black. All edges gilt. Dark brown coated endpapers. Previous owner's bookplate on the front pastedown endpaper. Some rubbing and light soiling to the covers, bumping to the corners and edges, some fraying and bumping to the head and foot of the spine, slightly frayed rear joint, some wear to the gilt especially to the bottom edge, some rubbing to the endpapers, a small tear and creasing to the front free endpaper, small inscription on the front free endpaper with the date "Dec. 26, 1874," some cracking to the hinges but still sound. Altogether a good copy.

An Encounter with an Interviewer appears for this first time in this work from pages 27 - 32, and is later collected in Punch Brothers Punch.
