About the Book

Published in 1896 it is a compilation of 100 stories. The book is a deep red in color, hard back, thick and heavy w/engraved theatrical faces (sad/happy) on the front. I was thrilled to find such an old book at my local library, the annual book sale... got it for .50 cents.

November 16, 2012 Edited by 65.188.246.116 Only just purchased today. Story # 37 was titled "The Siamese Twins" I was excited b/c these famous traveling, connected men settled here in the area where I now live. But... the story was about a story teller telling of his travels. When asked if he had seen the twins with his own eyes he replied yes, and no... "only one had he saw b/c the other had gone somewhere... The crowd decided to end the evening and not put the man in a bad place... not any info on the Siamese twins
