Binghamton, N.Y., Electrotyped by A.H. Jocelyn, New York, 1855.
Original brown clothe, stamped in blind and letter in gilt on front cover. Spine a touch loose with some abrasions, but still very presentable. Apparently quite scarce. WorldCat locates only two copies in the US and one in Canada(Yale, Fenimore, WU). Contains many interesting passages on various topics, notably a brief allusion to resistance in New York to the fugitive slave law passed in 1850.
