First Thus. Bound (without original wrappers) in late C19th black leather over marbled boards. Rear board partly sunned, a little scuffing, bookplate on front pastedown, good. The target here is Reade & Boucicault's desert island melodrama, Foul Play. Burnand had already parodied the original in a theatrical burlesque called Fowl Play, or A Story of Chikkin Hazard (1868), and an earlier story version (1873).
