About This Item

London: George Routledge & Co., 1858. Small 4to. xv, [1], 391 pages, plus frontispiece. Illustrated with numerous engravings by the Brothers Dalziel after works by J. Everett Millais, Birket Foster, John Tenniel, and many others (some full-page, but all reckoned in pagination). Original full brown morocco, extensively decorated in blind, with gilt spine lettering. All edges gilt and tooled in a crisscross pattern. Evidently a publisher's deluxe binding. [23 cm.] An attractive ex-library copy with no external markings and only light internal markings. Tasteful bookplate of Sondley Reference Library on front pastedown, embossed stamp of the institution on first few leaves and several others; small number stamp on verso of title and in lower margin of one leaf. Otherwise very good. Light rubbing and a few tiny stains to leather. Light to moderate scattered foxing, a bit heavier on frontispiece and title. Binding is solid and tight. FIRST EDITION.
