Description: 1,158 pages, thick 8vo, gilt-stamped brown cloth (minor fraying at the top and bottom of the spine). Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1895. Ninth edition. Very good condition.

Comments: Inscribed on the front flyleaf to "Florence Beard with the kindest regards of John Bartlett." Florence's sister Bessie, perhaps jealous of the inscription, penned her own name at the top, added the date "1895" on the side, and wrote the following at the bottom: "This volume was given to me and my sister by Mr. Bartlett who lived on Brattle Street, Cambridge Mass." In the middle of the page, a crudely trimmed portrait photograph of Bartlett has been pasted.
