Comments: The seller's book was published between 1898 and 1902. Altemus published this book in numerous formats beginning with the large volume in 1890. See: http://henryaltemus.com/images/NS_28.jpg. This was followed by editions in many of the Publisher's Series. The first Young People's Library edition was published in 1895.
The actual first edition of this book was published in the 1600's
Thus this book is just another late reprint by Altemus. It is not even the Altemus first,has no dust jacket and based on the picture is in lousy shape. $150 is quite out of touch with reality. A simple change could rectify this pricing blunder. Just move the decimal point two places to the left. At $1.50 the seller is close (but only if he pays the shipping).
