Cambridge: John Bartlett, 1858. Third edition, much revised, with the supplement. Original brown cloth, gilt.Top and bottom of spine worn and torn , corners bumped. Otherwise very good condition. First published in 1855, this third edition was the last published by Bartlett himself, and included about twice as much material as the first and second editions. "This nest-egg of the mind (the phrase is Christopher Morley's, editor of the eleventh edition, 1937) is as essential to the American living-room as the cook book to the American kitchen." --Grolier
