Original brown suede illustrated and lettered by pyrography. The story appeared in five parts in Atlantic Monthly in 1877, 14 years before My Cousin the Colonel, with which it is often twinned. The protagonist, a bank cashier and bookkeeper, plans a three-week holiday on horseback in northern New Hampshire. Mary, his newly-purchased steed, has her own agenda. 231 pp., followed by several attractively-illustrated ads.
