Apparently an unrecorded variant of the first separate printing by O. P. Bassett. The two other recorded copies have an imprint reading the "True Republican Office" with "Printer" abbreviated to "Pr."; the GLC copy omits the word "True" in the imprint and has "Printer" in-full. Like the two other extant copies, this copy prints the second "r" in "Territory" on page 13 upside down.
Notes: Basler 2: 461 - 468. One of three copies of this edition. A unique, uncut and unbound variant printed by O. P. Bassett at the [True] Republican office.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
