London: Provost & Co, 1871. Second edition (first was in 1869 ). Original dark blue bevel edge pictorial cloth stamped in gilt, rear cover in blind, all edges gilt, brown endpapers. pp (4), 182, (2, ads) + 10 mounted 19.2 x 13.5 cm photos and 5 smaller albumin photos mounted in text. Professionally rebacked, with original decorated spine laid down, some original cloth loss at ends but no stamping lost; sunning to inner margin of rear cover; inner hinges professionally repaired with matching brown paper; title leaf has nicks along bottom edge, shallow chip (about 0.5 cm deep) along outer edge, well away from any printing; light foxing to title page and other pages facing the large photos; otherwise a VG clean, bright and tight copy, no owner names, text unworn and unsullied. 19th century books with original mounted photos like these are getting harder and harder to find on the market.
