About This Item

London: John Murray , 1879 A good copy of the 7th edition in the original decorative cloth binding with black and white frontispiece and numerous illustrations throughout. The binding is bright and clean. The spine is slightly darkened and there is wear to the top and bottom of the spine, together with edges and corners. Internally, the original endpapers are present - the front endpapers with a slight split beginning to appear at the joint. The contents are complete and in good to very good condition. There are some small edge tears - mostly to the top margin affecting the half title, frontispiece, title page and dedication. These have been repaired with archival paper tape. There is small loss to the side margin of page 31 where the book has been poorly opened - the text is not affected. Some top page corners have been turned over at some point. 32 pp publisher's catalogue dated September 1880 at the rear.
