Edinburgh:David Douglas. 1891. 1st edition. xi+298pp. Illustrated. Hardcover. Green boards lightly soiled, rubbed and shelfworn, with gilt on front cover and spine strip slighlty dulled and wear along edges, spine ends and edge points worn to boards. The top of the spine strip has dime-size chip and both bottom and top edge have started to fray. The top page edges are gilt with fore-edges and bottom edges roughly cut. Internally, red end-pages with the remains of what looks to have been an old bookplate or article which was glued to the inside front boards. Otherwise pages are free of previous owners marks or signatures. Two pages (210/211) have darkened at top edge, as if an newspaper article has been left to long. Only the frontispiece has a tissue guard and a few of the plates have off-set to opposite page. The binding is tight with hinges intact.
