Aladdin's Lamp

From 1001 Nights

I came across this great picture of a book that is currently up for "adoption" by the American Antiquarian Society ( where you can adopt books for preservation.

The book's information from the website:

Adopted by Cleota Reed

Aladdin or the wonderful lamp. (Little Delights). New York: McLoughlin Bros., [ca. 1868-1874]

This copy of Aladdin is an excellent example of McLoughlin Bros.' attractive editions of fairy tales in an economical eight-page format.
