London, Cornhill Magazine, 1860. Wraps. pp. 61 to 73.8vo,,An extract (pp. 61 to 73) from this British periodical,No author is shown.

Again, one can speculate that this was a preliminary article on that subject by that author. Pages a bit rippled and slightly age-toned, else in very good condition.
