Early reprint. Original pictorial wrappers, front cover printed in red & black. pp., stapled. The back cover is lacking; the book is rebound in the tan lettered wrappers of Pratt's Circulating Library from Denver. Front cover is glued partly onto the original front wrapper, but it is mostly undamaged. The title is spelled differently on the front wrapper: Tourmaline's instead of Tourmalin's. The rubber stamp of Pratt's Circulating Library is stamped on the covers and all through the book, on almost every page! The British edition appeared from Arrowsmith, also in 1891. A comic novel in which a man can bank hours of time, to redeem later. An uncommon edition.
