Beaconsfield by George Makepeace Towle 1878
I believe this is a first edition - it was the year it was written - but I cannot completely guarantee it. It was published in 1878 in New York.
Great illustration of Disraeli (aka Lord Beaconsfield, the book's subject) in the Oscar Wilde pose, along with other illustrations. Relevant articles from 1870s newspapers have been pasted in by some former owner.
Lovely marbled boards with leather spine with some wear.
