Description:
This novel has the message “M.R. Fisher Christmas 1849” written in pen on the first page behind the front cover. The ink bleeds through the page and is visible on the backhand side of it. No other marginalia was found within the book. I can assume that this was either given as a gift to this person, or they were giving it away to someone else. The book has a horribly musty smell and it appears that the pages are quite damaged.
