CONDITION: Original maroon cloth boards, elaborate gilt stamped decoration and titles on front cover, five stamped borders rear cover with vine and leaf pattern in middle frame, TEG. Pages sewn at some early stage with new endpapers (old paper). No other restorations. All examples of the book are either resewn or need sewing because the original publication was made with glued pages, and none of that glue remained stable and holding over the years (hence pages became loose). Some rubbing at tips corners and spine ends, some fading to the original spine cloth (often the spine on this book is completely replaced), solid binding, old gift inscription dated 1873 on the top of the title page, no other owner marks or writing on pages, foxing on the card mounts for the plates and on some of the plates themselves but not in the images on the plates, some foxing on text pages at the front and rear. The elaborate covers are cleaner and brighter than what is usually found for this book. Price: $1950.
