8vo. Original dark green cloth elaborately blocked in gilt to spine and upper board, all edges gilt, matt dark green endpapers; pp. [vi], vii-xxviii + 389; with fine illustrations throughout after engravings; an uncommonly fresh copy in bright condition with light overall rubbing and just a suggestion of dulling to spine gilt; tiny surface wear to cloth at bottom forecorner (with no exposure of board); minor flecked loss of finish along lower margin of upper board, and a very small (6mm) bruise to bottom forecorner of lower cover, internally spotless, without inscription; remarkably scarce in this condition.
First edition illustrated thus and possibly the prettiest illustrated edition of this classic.
