1 Homes of American Authors; comprising Anecdotical, Personal, and Descriptive Sketches, by Various Writters
New York G. P. Putnam & Co. 1853 Pressed cloth with gilt title and design to spine Wear to top and bottom of spine, some wear to edges, some transfering, a few b&w illus. of authors from other sources glued to front and back blank pages, otherwise good.two title pages( differently typeset) Lg.8vo. Illustrated with views of their residences from original drawings, and a facsimile of the manuscript of each author. 
In this instance, the full page plates are all black and white, but a series of 14 very charming colored vignettes, printed on tissues and mounted onto the book sheets, mainly as chapter headings, is too remarkable not to be registered. These vignettes are all glimpses of portions of the residences or grounds. We have counted eleven wood engravings colored, but not on mounted tissue in this edition not published by Putnam
