Vicar of Wakefield Alta Edition Oliver Goldsmith Published by Porter & Coates, Philadelphia Published in 1880

The Vicar of Wakefield has long been considered one of the most interesting tales in our language. Written by Oliver Goldsmith and first published in 1766 and a perennial favorite since then, The Vicar of Wakefield is built around the naïve but loveable figure of Dr. Primrose. He and his family live in rural bliss until disaster threatens to destroy their happiness: abduction, impoverishment, and betrayal combine to lay them low, but a surprising figure brings hope when all seems lost.

This book is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Some random spots on pages, nothing that effects reading this classic story. This book was given as a Christmas present in 1883, inscribed in beautiful handwriting.
