Description

This is a very good copy of the First State of the First English edition. The green cloth is nominally faded and somewhat darkened with age, as is the gilt lettering. The binding is tight and the corners are sharp. There is a vintage owner name in pencil on the front free endpaper. The tissue guard is present on the title page, though it has browned considerably. The rear publisher’s catalogue has been removed resulting in separation at the hinges, front and rear. The contents are fine and unfoxed, with all maps present and correctly folded.
