User Summary: The first Dialogue was filed for copyright July 20, 1859, but had been announced in Song Book No. 2, as ready July 13. This unnumbered issue is a small volume, 5 7/8 by 3 ¾ inches in size, with trimmed edges and stabbed binding, in pale cream wrappers which bear the cut of a dime on the front, but no other illustration. The title page reads: "The Dime Dialogues. Designed especially for schools, exhibitions, and families, by Louis Legrand, M.D." The book has 72 pages and several pages of advertisements of Irwin P. Beadle's Handbooks, namely, a Cook Book, a Recipe Book, a Dime Dialogue, a Dime Speaker, and two Dime Song Books. Later, the book was reissued by Irwin P. Beadle & Co., 137 William Street. It has buff covers, with no illustration on the front, and is somewhat different in design from the preceding. There is additional material, the pages do not correspond in appearance to the original, for new type was used, and the title page was marked "Revised and Enlarged Edition." The contents of the first 76 pages are identical with the 72 of the original edition, but page 6, the first page of dialogues, becomes page 10, and new material was added at the end to bring the number up to 99. The book was deposited in the copyright office April 28, 1864. The size is 6 3/8 by 4 1/8 inches.
