Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I own a copy of the original edition of Ticknor's "Life of William Hickling Prescott". The original edition contained pen and ink illustrations at the head of each chapter. Furthermore, the original edition that I own was typeset using the "long s" and the "short s" so that it takes some conditioning of the mind to read what appears to be "From thefe, and fimilar maffes of manufcript, were felected .." as "From these, and similar masses of manuscript, were selected ..". This reprint edition is definitely a fascimile of a later version for which the type for the entire book had been reset. Apparently this latter version omitted the illustrations that definitely add character to the original 1864 printing.
