Description: Frontispiece and extra illustrated title page, both engraved after paintings by Edwin Landseer and dated 1839. With 10 additional sepia toned lithograph plates; other figures in the text. xix, [i], 436pp. Tall 8vo, beautifully bound by Riviere & Son in 3/4 forest green morocco; gilt-decorated spine with deer head motif; marbled endpapers. London: John Murray, 1838. First edition. A scarce book.

Comments: Both joints neatly repaired; 3 plates have faint dampstain in corner, otherwise a very nice clean copy with minimal foxing. Spine and extra title are dated 1839 but title states 1838 and this is definitely not the "new" 1839 edition.

I am very pleased that you took the time to consult me on the price before just adding the additional shipping cost onto my credit card. Ordering things on-line, one runs into all kinds of less-than-considerate business practices... Thanks again for taking the time to contact me. I'm looking forward to the book. - Eric P.
