First edition, state A. Octavo. vi, 209 pages. [1, publisher's ad prior to the title page]. [7, publisher's ads at the rear].
Publisher's olive green cloth covers with the front cover and spine lettered in gilt and elaborately stamped in blue and a deeper olive green. Illustrated endpapers with an all-over pattern of olive-green parsley-like leaves.
This first edition is in the first state due to the absence of the portrait frontispiece, and the presence of the illustrated endpapers. Published by Charles L. Webster, this work is part of the Fiction, Fact, and Fancy Series which also included works by Walt Whitman.
