This collection of stories (this example is volume 3) appears to have been given as a gift to an “M.R. Fisher” (no records can be found) for Christmas in 1849. It’s possible that this person was a fan of Edgeworth’s writing and was given the set in honor of Edgeworth who passed in May of that year. The book is in very rough shape, the pages are barely held together, the pages contain many coffee stains and a smear from a substance of some sort.
