Book Condition: Good with no dust jacket


Attractive black cloth-covered boards with blind-stamped decoration to the cloth, and bright gilt illustration to the front cover (man on camel) and with bright gilt titling and gilt Illustration to the spine. Some light wear to the corners but overall a very attractive mid-victorian binding. The page fore-edges are toned with age as usual, and both front and rear inner paper hinges are split. A former owners' name and date (1849) written in old ink on the front pastedown and 3 spots of what looked to have been sealing wax on the front free endpaper where something 'paper' had been attached in the past. (x) + (2 ) + 443 pp + a 16 page David Bogue's (Late Tilt and Bogue) Annual Catalogue at the end. Tissue guarded b/w steel engraved frontispiece and 6 other b/w full page tissue guarded engravings. Despite having tissue guards the plates (and some tissue guards! ) are browned/spotted, but overall the text block is very clean. The FIRST EDITION - dated 1847 on foot of the title page. Charles Tilt, who is apparently the publisher and author, narrates the voyage taken by the British couple Mr. & Mrs. Dalton with their children Emily & Charles. No actual date for the trip is given in this work but it's likely that it took place in 1846. Overall an attractive copy. See Images. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
