RARE AND COLLECTIBLE! The two other versions of this First Edition online are $157 and $192. There is also an 1888 version by Thomas Nelson and Sons from London. This one has a beautifully penned inscription dated 1886 - see photo. Edge and corner wear on boards, particularly top and bottom of spine; corners bumped, Dark brown endpapers, no markings in 208 clean pages. First brown endpaper mostly detached but present; this is the page to the left of the inscription page. Binding slightly weak in spots, but fully bound. Nice illustrations though they weren't placed in the book where identified in the Table of Contents - they were a page or two before or after the page number identified in the TOC.
