Quarto. Pp v, [1], 155, [1]. 18 superb numbered lithographed plates printed by Hullmandel after Stubbs, Seymour, Marshall, Chalon & Cooper as called for; plates printed on India paper and mounted, each with tissue-guard.

Cloth a little rubbed and stained to rear with bumped upper corner, and minor wear to corners and spine tips. Minor sporadic foxing largely confined to title page, tissue-guards & plate margins; 1-inch tear to edge of mount to plate XVI (plate unaffected) and minor nicks to margins of 2 other plates; corner crease to title page and tissue-guard of frontis.
