First published in London by Longmans, 1877

My copy of the 1877 first edition has been rebound.

It is very uncommon to find the first edition in collectible condition in its original decorative cloth-over-boards binding.

All images below I harvested from the Internet, and I do not own any of the books pictured or the images themselves.

This is the oldest dust jacket that I have ever heard of or seen in a photo or with my own eyes. It is from the 1877 first edition.

The 1877 first edition came in either a decorative red or cream-colored cloth-over-boards binding; very handsome books

A THOUSAND MILES UP THE NILE was reprinted in 1889 by Routledge, London, in various colors of cloth
