by Anon

Condition: See description


London: C. & J. Rivington, 1827 4.25" x 7.25" tall approx. Pp iv, 384 + 86 wood-cut illustrations. Some minor finger-marking to margins and occasional foxing, the blank back of one plate being stained and the frontispiece, which has an inscription of 1861 to its verso, lightly creased owing to the volume having been disbound for a while in the past. Otherwise a very good example of an edition having many more plates than most, bound by Cadwaladr-Jones, with new endpapers, in modern quarter calf/marbled boards/red-leather label with gilt title. . New Edition. Hard Cover.
