Antique Tom Brown's School Days By An Old Boy, Thomas Hughes/hurst & Co./1880's?

I found this book at a collector's estate sale.............ANTIQUE Tom Brown's School Days by An Old Boy, Thomas Hughes/Hurst & Co. with Illustrations!
There is no date indicated in the book but from research on line it would most likely be from the Unknown 1880 series by Hurst & Company. There is also an 1891 inscription written on the cover pages, as well as 1880's advertising in the back of the book.
This book is in great condition for it's age. The cover is very clean and intact. Very little corner/edge bumping. The most foxing I see in the book is directly related to the protective page for the lithograph in the front of the book. The pages are all intact, no tears, or folds, and no marks. There is a book plate in the front of the book, and several inscription on the first two cover pages. Look closely at the pictures.The Tom Brown Series was written by Thomas Hughes (1822-1896) and is a two volume series that chronicles English school boy adventures. According to many scholars these books and Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby present this genre in a more realistic way than any other novels. Hughes' own schoolboy experiences at the Rugby School under Dr. Arnold and Oriel College, Oxford became the foundation for this two book semi-autobiographical series. His brother George appears to be the model for Tom Brown.

Hughes was quite an idealist. He attempted to establish an agricultural community with a Christian lifestyle with none of the class distinctions of British society. This community which was located in Tennessee was founded in 1880. Although initially well populated and successful, disease and financial difficulties eventually doomed this enterprise.
