About This Item

London: John Murray, 1839 3rd edition, (1st published 8 years earlier in 1831), in contemporary full leather binding with 6 black and white plates. Classed as poor because the boards are adrift, there are loose preliminaries (at one point one was attached with sellotape) and there is browning, particularly where the plates have offset to tissue guards and text. There is a signature for John ?Slater Harrison, dated 1839 to a preliminary.Remaining contents nice and clean. There is light brown toning to paper.
