Scholarly Commentary


This is the de luxe edition of the volume, whose binding design repeats the design of the de luxe editions of DGR's other two books issued in 1870 and 1881. These were issued in a larger octavo format on Whatman paper and were bound in light blue boards that were partially covered by the cream colored spine.
