Cassell & Company Limited. London.,1889.
FIRST EDITION. 4to.(12.8 x 10.2 inches). Fully illustrated throughout with over 200, mostly wood engraved, maps and views, some full page. A very good, bright and clean copy in the publishers original bevelled edged blue cloth binding. Gilt rules and lettering to front board and spine. Black endpapers. A tight, firm copy without any of the usual cracking to the hinges found with this title, the result of the heavy coated paper used for printing. The corners and edges of the cloth have some rubbing and wear but nothing serious. Overall a very good copy of this attractive book.:.
