Book: Inscription in ink to front endpaper which is also part detached from binding. Endpapers foxed. Front board detached. Boards worn with loss of colour. Base of spine chipped with loss. Corners bumped and worn. The plate descriptions on page 160 are slightly confusing and it could be argued that there should be 8 plates in this volume, but only 6 are bound in and none appear to have been removed. Opposite the frontis appears to be the half-title page with no title page present, we believe this is the way this copy was bound.
