Description

In the title page for George P. Putnam's first edition of the novel, the title is printed at the top quarter of the page followed by a period. The author's pseudonym Elizabeth Wetherell is printed in the page's middle. An inscription, taken from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "To a Child," appears between two decorative rules. George P. Putnam's address is listed as "New York: 155 Broadway." Though the novel was released in December 1850, the copyright date is listed as 1851 in this first edition.
