British Sea-Weeds: an introduction to the study of the marine algae of Great Britain, Ireland and the Channel Islands

By Samuel Octavus Gray

LONDON : L Reeve & Co., 1867 A good copy in the original green decorative cloth binding with 16 hand coloured plates by Fitch and Brooks. This volume is part of Reeve's Crown Octavo series which was a popular natural history series for beginners and amateurs. The binding is in good to very good condition with bright gilt decoration to the front board. The spine is a little dulled and has a couple of small marks. There is some pulling to the top and bottom. The original endpapers are present. The front endpaper has had a particularly poor repair to the joint with the book block, which has certainly prevented splitting, but is jagged and has glue lines around it. The rear endpapers are in very good unmarked condition. Contents with tissue-guarded frontispiece and title page dated 1867. Text pages with light toning to edges; plates at the rear bright and clean. 16 pp publisher's catalogue at the rear.
