Boston, Houghton Mifflin: 1891
293 pp., tissue frontis; 12mo; burgundy cloth lettered and decorated in gilt. With a Ben Franklin bookmark laid in with this now wistful quote: "God grant that not only love of liberty, but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that anybody may set their foot anywhere on its surface and say: This is my country!"
