Printed London: Bradbury and Evans, Printers, Whitefriars. Published by W. Crofts 1836 8vo. 412pp. original tooled leather boards, with gilt decoration to front and rear board and gilt title and decorations to spine. Top of spine is worn, spine and spine fold, and edges of the front and rear boards are rubbed to reveal orginal colour leather. Marbled end pages. Some of the plates have been torn and repaired with no loss. The end pages are aged, but un-foxed and not toned. The copy has toning and foxing throughout. The tissues have been removed from all the illustrations. The lithograph illustrations were all printed by C Hullmandel, and some are Onstone by T M Boyne, others are hand coloured, these appear to have been printed seperately and then added to blank pages in the book, so some of the lithographs have deteriorated around the edges, but the blank page they were put on is not. There is no title page. Fold-out Map at rear is torn in half, with loss and a piece missing from the bottom of the half that is there. Altogether this book is an interesting relic, it is in very solid condition, the pages are not brittle, but are toned throughout.
