T. Nelson and sons. London. 1853.
FIRST EDITION. 8vo. (7 x 4.6 inches). Frontis, vignette on extra title page and four full page engraved plates, each with a tissue guard. Aside from a couple of small water marks to the frontis and title pages this is a bright copy in original publishers red cloth with elaborate blind stanped decoration to both boards and spine. Gilt lettering to the centre of the front board and the spine. Yellow coated endpapers. A hint of fading to the spine and mild mottling to the front board but overall a lovely copy.
