Book Condition: Good+ with no dust jacket


In a brown half leather binding (spine and corners leather) with textured cloth covers, with gilt titling and decoration to the spine and gilt border rules to the front and rear covers. Four raised bands to the spine with gilt decorations to the compartments and gilt titling to the second to the top compartment. Corners bumped and rubbed, and a few rubs and light 'scrapes' here and there but overall the book presents well and is a handsome looking copy. Internally plain yellow endpapers. An uninscribed/unascribed bookplate is on the front pastedown. The name and location of a later owner is written in ink opposite, on the front free endpaper. The page fore-edges are lightly toned with age and lightly 'dusty' as you would expect. On the second free blank endpaper it states in pencil at the top "bound Dec 11th 1857". All hinges are sound. (7) + (vi-xii) + 400 pp. Half title. Full page steel engraved frontispiece, plus 22 further full-page plates (including 1 fold-out ground plan). All present as called for, tho a couple placed a page or two off the listing. Some pale foxing, and 'patching' here and there throughout the text, mainly at the beginning and end, but pages 157-159 are pretty browned (perhaps different paper stock used? ) tho all text easily read, and some offsetting opposite the plates - probably because NO tissue guards are present as often found to protect the plates/page. Some of the sections are a slightly different shade to others but uniform. Overall all plates and text are pretty clean. Some neat pencil notes in a couple of the margins - easily erased - but I've left them as potentially interesting to the new buyer? . Also a few small dates written in ink to the margins later on in the book. Seven chapters; 4 Appendices; Index; List of Ilustrations and Subscribers list at end. Overall an attractive and well preserved copy. See Images. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall
