4to. Original cream cloth, with gilt ornamentation and lettering to upper board and spine; top edge gilt, others untrimmed; decorative endpapers, the first being a map of the City of London; pp. [vi], vii-xxiv, [ii], 3-90, [2]; with 16 plates of illustrations, one being the frontispiece, and a facsimile of the title-page to the first edition; marks to boards and spine; ownership inscription to front fly-leaf; discolouration to fly-leaves; a little spotting in places to the text; a good copy.
