The CRICKET On The HEARTH. A Fairy Tale of Home.
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1846. Early US edition [Edgar & Vail, pg 23; Gimbel A93; VanderPoel B403(2)]. 32 pp (double column) + 16 pp 'Catalogue of Books' at rear, 8vo. Printed brown wrappers. Uncut edges. An overall Very Good copy with the usual foxing, and some dampstaining signs along the gutter. Item #9848.1
Often called the 1st US edition, priority cannot be established with absolute certainty, so we hesitate to term it such... In any event, undoubtedly an uncommon item; a search of the auction records for the last 25 years shows only two having been offered.
