West & Johnston (1861)

In 1861 West and Johnston, a Richmond, Virginia publishing house, produced "Brown and Arthur". This book is basically a copy of the second part of School Days at Rugby. Here and there a few words are changed but it is otherwise word for word. It was "Arranged for the Press by a Mother". The introduction makes the publisher's religious slant on things obvious: "the school-room, the study, and the playground, would be made scenes of healthy christian feeling and activity". This book is quite uncommon.
