About This Item

LONDON : Whittaker, Treacher, & Co., 1830 A very good copy with 49 black and white plates, some folding, and one folding table as issued. This book was published as a supplementary volume to 'The Animal Kingdom arranged in conformity with its organization by the Baron Cuvier..' translated and written by Edward Griffith and others as a 16 volume set. This copy is in the original publisher's cloth binding with paper label to spine. The binding is clean with very bumped and turned corners. Spine ends with pulling. Slightly shaken. Internally, there is a publisher's catalogue of Whittaker's works sewn in after the front endpaper. Contents are clean with some toning to margins, particularly the top margin and top page edge where it has been exposed to a sooty environment. The two title pages are present and are unopened. Index at the rear. Plates have some browning particularly where they are folding. There is some offsetting from the plates.
