Publisher John Murray, London 1828
Seller ID 6341
First edition. Hardback, contemporary brown paper-covered boards with black lettering on cream title-label (which is browned) to spine. Publisher's ads, viii, 273 pp.; occasional text engravings. A clean, tightly-bound copy with light foxing throughout - the foxing is a trifle heavier on the endpapers and early and latter pages. The covers are a little edge-worn and marked; the spine and spine-joints have some superficial surface cracks but the book is structurally very sound - the hinges have likely been recent stabilised. Overall, a very decent copy indeed.
