About This Item

Chapman & Hall, London, 1839. First edition. 8vo. xvi + 624pp. Contemporary half calf binding with five raised bands and gilt lettering and rule. With a tissue-protected engraved portrait frontispiece and thirty-nine Phiz plates, all of which exhibit some marginal spotting. Corner tips rubbed and a little chafed. Former owner name neatly inked to the head of the title page. A very good copy, agreeing with most of the textual points listed by Smith (including 'latter' for letter' on p.160; and 'sister' instead of 'visitor' on p.123), and with the frontispiece and first four plates showing the publisher's imprint, as required for the first state.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.
