Women of New York, Hankins, Marie Louise
9 Hankins, Marie Louise Women of New York
New York Marie Louise Hankins & Co. 1861 Cloth Very Good short 8vo. Marie Louise Hankins 
354 pages, with double frontispiece, 34 plates and some in-text illustrations, [pages 350-4 are ads]. Orange cloth stamped in gilt. All edges gilded. Publisher's original yellow endpapers. Most of gilt gone from spine; light soiling to cloth; occasional unobtrusive spotting within. Binding sound and hinges secure. A very good example. Pagination jumps from 332 to 337 but nothing is lacking. Hankins included all plates in pagination except for the two facing ones "Peculiarities To Begin With" between pages 13/14 so the hiatus between 332/337 may be a nod to that.
