About This Item

London: Whittaker and Co, 1834 A good copy of the 10th volume in the Griffith edition of 'The Animal Kingdom arranged in conformity with its Organization by the Baron Cuvier', which is complete in itself. The Griffith edition has particularly fine detailed plates which are black and white in most copies, and occasionally in colour. This copy has 64 black and white plates. The page format is unusually large - 25.9cm x 20 cm. It has been rebound at some point in maroon buckram cloth with gilt titles and the name Foyle to the spine. There is some darker marking to the spine; some rubbing to edges and joints and the corner wear. The rebinding has unfortunately attached the series title page to the front endpaper at the gutter and has done the same with the rear endpaper and the final leaf. The stitching is visible two leaves in at the front and one leaf back at the rear. However, the binding is sound and clean. Contents are very clean with occasional light marking, mainly to top margins and some offsetting from the plates. There is some marking to the series title page. Contents: series title; volume title; note thanking Dr P B Lord 1p; plate list 2 pp; text pp 1-680 with 64 plates.
