Found an interesting book in my book case that I am having trouble locating elsewhere. It's a small hardback by B. L. Farjeon, Little Make - Believe.  Farjeon was a Victorian author considered by many as a middling author.  He was apparently born in America, moved to Australia when he was sixteen where he wrote his first book which encouraged him to continue his writing career.  He wrote some 50 different novels.  I've done only a little online research and this is some of what I discovered.  The book has no publishing date but I believe that it may have been printed in 1874-5 - or somewhere about that time by George Munroe's Sons, New York, and is called a Crescent Edition.  Does anyone know where I can get more information?

I'd take it to a local rare book dealer for an evaluation. It's not too often that one finds a book printed in the 1870s. Wow!
