London, Sampson, Low & Co., 1859. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. This is the first edition (the second edition is so stated on the title page). Quite uncommon. Three copies located on COPAC. One recent copy at auction. Rebound in a modern binding, not entirely sympathetic. Half morocco, marbled boards, five-raised bands, new endpapers. Half titles perhaps absent, if there were any (no collation available). No catalogue to rear (the auction copy previously noted had a 12pp catalogue, and there's a little offsetting to the final page showing some ads having been present). [Volume one: Title page, Preface 1pp, 340pp. Volume two: Title page, Contents 1pp, 298pp] A little foxed, title page in volume one has a couple of chips to lower corners. A few light stains throughout. Ink writing to verso of title page (see pic). Some offsetting from the leather to the endpapers. [7840, Hyraxia Books].
