12mo, Maroon cloth, beveled edges, gilt titles and top. Scarce first state with 'Lovell' on the backstrip and the copyright notice on verso of title page. Later issues generally have the backstrip blank; some have Lovell Coryell. Some have Lovell Coryell on the title page and some have no date on verso. This is the first American edition of the Ditties and first edition altogether of seventeen Barrack Room Ballads, including such famous poems as Gunga Din, Fuzzy Wuzzy, and Mandalay. Very good; minor edge and corner wear; a few small blemishes on front cover appear to be pencil erasure; light rubbing to top and bottom of spine; front hinge cracked. [Livingston 55]
