[Sheet height: 21.1 cm.] [6], 443 pages, plus half-title leaf and [1] page terminal ad. Handsomely bound in 19th century full calf. Each cover has a morocco grained panel enclosed in multiple blind rules, an ornate gilt border, and double gilt rules. Spine with raised bands, new spine labels in red and black leather, and gilt decorations on other compartments. Marbled endpapers and all edges marbled. About very good. Lightly rubbed, some sunning evident on upper third of boards, and faint reminder of small removed label on front board, but binding is still attractive.

Scattered foxing to two gatherings (N and O), and a few minor traces elsewhere, but interior is generally clean and bright. FIFTH EDITION, so stated, following the first edition of the same year.
