Boston: J. Stillman Smith, 1895. Slim 12mo (13.5cm); grey/pictorial publisher's cloth; 53pp. Boards soiled, scuffed and rubbed about the extremities, with frayed material at heel of spine; pastedowns partially detached from textblock; interiors intermittently soiled; handmade blue paper bookmark laid-in; signed by author on title page. Very Good overall. Edward Everett Hale was a prominent Boston author and Unitarian minister; he supported the principles of practical liberal theology and often reflected these ideals in his writing. His stories inspired the formation of many charitable and relief organizations, including the Lend-a-Hand Society. This short and humorous tale, presented here in his "Tell it Again" series for young readers, was originally published in the May, 1890 issue of Harper's. Includes a handmade bookmark of unknown origin, with a tipped-on picture of the E.E. Hale statue in the Boston Public Gardens. Edition not stated.
