Condition: See description


London : Bradbury & Evans, 1848.. XVI, 624 S. Lwd. der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - Die Editionslage dieses herausragenden Werkes ist nicht ohne Tücken, d.h. komplex: Es gibt Merkmale, die man einer `early` first edition zuordnet, andere die man einer `late` first zuordnet und einer sog. mixed state editon. Die geschätzten Kollegen der Firma Maggs Bros. Ltd. London schreiben zu einem ähnlichen Exemplar: »A mix of states, as usual. There is no evidence of this copy having been issued in parts (i.e. no stab-holes), the drop heading on page [1] is in rustic type (early), the portrait of Lord Steyne on page 336 is lacking (late), page 453 has the reading `Mr. Pitt` (early), and the street address is given on the imprint (late).« Das Buch ist papierbedingt - wie wohl immer - gebräunt. Hand-schriftliche Widmung von F. v. Hammerstein auf dem Vorsatz.
