About This Item

London: John Bowyer Nichols and Son, 1st edition, 1839. Hardcover. Good. Etched plates (30) by John Thomas Smith + portrait of author by J. Jackson R.A. engraved by W. Skelton.. Royal quarto, green cloth-spined marbled paper-covered boards, with defective gilt-titled spine label, xv (inc. half title, title, advertisement, contents and biography of author) + 99p +[1]p advert for author's Antiquities of Westminster. Some quite heavy scattered foxing, mosty on blank verso of plates and their margins. *The author was known as "Antiquity Smith" - although first published after his death, this book was prepared for press soon after publication in 1817 of his Vagabondiana or Anecdotes of Mendicant Wanderers through the Streets of London. So it was considered to be a continuation - the half title reads "VAGABONDIANA .. Volume II by John Thomas Smith London 1839".
