Hi All,

I got this copy of "Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell at a library sale and haven't been able to locate the year/edition. The publisher listed is Hurst and Company, New York but there is no copyright information or publishing date...

I've seen other Arlington Editions with the same design on the cover, and I'm guessing they date to the early 20th century 1900-1910s. Any clues?

Lovely old book regardless. :)

    here's a similar cover style from Arlington, also with no date :(

    hahaha, thanks for the info MustangTony. Great to know that it was probably pre-1900. Pretty early for Black Beauty since it was first published in 1877...it's bizarre to me that it wouldn't have a copyright page at all (and it doesn't seem to be missing any).

    happy thanksgiving!

    Wouldn't know how to date, but mustangtony has been pretty straight in some of my postings with dating them, and Thanks to you and Joanna. :-)

    thanks kerry and bellin!

    Kerry, I threw one of your watch collections up on our homepage (scroll down to the bottom)...coming along very nicely. I think Joanna finished restoring all the old posts - if not she'll finish them up next monday when we're back from the holiday.

    Hunter, Joanna has all of them re-posted. I really like the "Featured Collection" on the Homepage, Thanks again for all you help and Wish you and yours a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Pleas pass the wishes and thanks along to all the Staff also.
