by William Macgillivray

Condition: Good/N


London, Edinburgh, and Dublin: A Fullarton and Co. , 1853 A good copy of the 7th corrected and enlarged edition in the original brown cloth binding, with 21 hand coloured plates. The binding has some chipping with loss to the top of the spine, and the cloth is splitting and fraying at the top half of the front hinge. It is otherwise clean and in good order with just light wear at corners and edges. Internally the original endpapers are present and the contents are complete. The plates are tissue-guarded and very clean. The text (and endpapers) have light spotting. The Glossary and Index have been bound slightly out of order, with some Glossary pages in the Index and vice versa - but they are complete.
