New York: G.W. Carleton & Co., (1882). 8vo. Printed cloth, gilt-stamped titles. Very good. Modest scuffs, edgewear to boards. Pages moderately to heavily foxed throughout, but complete and unmarked. Binding cracked at several points; mostly good and sound throughout. 514pp. (Item ID: 19572)

Rare. Stated eighteenth edition, but OCLC locates no other editions of this title, so this was likely a marketing tactic to increase the impression of the book's popularity. OCLC finds only four worldwide holdings of the physical book: one in Canada and three in the U.S. An extensively illustrated general encyclopedia for popular consumption, which includes "whole chapters upon" subjects including Fine Arts, Jurisprudence, Vegetable Creation, Animal Creation, Mineralogy, Chronology, and more; edited by "The Ablest Talent the World Affords."
