Handsome and quite tight undated but circa 1870s reprint edition of this combination anthology and critique -- whose already-verbose subtitle continues: "Designed Not Only for General Use, But Also as a Textbook or Reader, and a Prize-Book, for the Higher Classes in Catholic Educational Institutions." First published in 1868 in New York by The Trow & Smith Book Manufacturing Company. A brilliant copy with gleaming gilt.
