This Book is from the Fred X Fry collection and is still in the mailer box used to ship to Fred X.  The inside front cover has been inscribed and dated 1888 by C. Robertson Bauchope, the editor/author of this book. After Fry had owned the book for a period of time, he gave it to his brother Don. Fry writes this on one of the end pages and also signed the page - twice. Fry also stamped the top of the preface page with his name/address stamp.  For more on Fred X Fry, Click Here.
