About This Item

London: Printed by W. Wilson for J. Bumpus et al, 1821. Hardcover. Good. Bound in full red contemporary morocco with gilt borders and all edges gilt. pp. x, 242, pp. iv, 280, with frontispiece to vol 1. Minor spotting both volumes, occasional finger-marks or similar. A few Pencil notes to prelims, Cracked at fep, volume 2. Good overall condition, both bindings firm and square. The "disappearing" paintings are visible only when the block is fanned to the right and would otherwise escape notice. Each painting depicts an angling scene - "fly-fishing" and "trolling for pike". I can detect no artist name or monograph. The images have retained their colour well and are in Good condition.
