The Lamplighter, written by Maria S. Cummins was a best seller in it's time.
It is the story of a mistreated orphan who is rescued from her guardian and raised lovingly in a religious environment. The novel was so popular it was adapted for the stage and made into a silent film in 1921.
This copy was probably published in the 1920s, roughly 70 years after the original publishing date of March 1st 1854 although there is no publishing date in the book.
The pages are darkened and overall in 'ok' condition. The hardcover has some small tearing on the spine but otherwise is in 'ok' condition.
