Boston: n.p., 1850. 8vo. pp. 482-500. FIRST EDITION. Disbound. A bright, clean copy. Item #12251
First edition. Contains the first appearance of this article which was later re-printed as a separate pamphlet. While the authorship is usually attributed to Holmes, some believe that the author was in fact Jacob Bigelow, as every presentation copy bears his inscription rather than that of Holmes. BAL, 8755; C&T, p. 451.
