London: John Murray, 1838. First edition. A scarce book. very good(+).
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.
