FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION. Small 4to. (9.3 x 6.5 inches). Beautifully illustrated with ten etchings after Poirson. Finely bound by Zaehnsdorf in early half dark brown morocco. Spine with raised bands with floral gilt roll design. Compartments ruled and lettered in gilt. Floral patterned paper on the boards and endpapers. Top edge gilt, the others untrimmed.
