Boston: Ticknor and Company, 1889. Small Octavo, Near Fine. The original printing of Foster's famous song was published by Firth, Pond & Co. in 1851; this edition with drawings and engravings by Charles Copeland in 1887. There is a frontis portrait of vocalist Christine Nilsson, with tissue guard present. The boards are covered in an embossed paper with a floral motif, title in gilt. A previous owner name in very fine pen appears on the front free endpaper. Unpaginated, (though 36 pp.), with lyrics on versos and illustrations on facing rectos. The musical score is appended on the leaf preceding the rear endpaper. Not a rare edition, but decidedly uncommon in such splendid condition.
