The first edition of this work was published in two volumes in 1853; this is a copy of Volume I only. Original brown cloth covers stamped with embossed decorations on the front and back, still (barely) legible gilt lettering and decorations on the spine. On most interest is the decoration and printing near the base of the spine: a wreath around the words FREEDOM AND SELF-RULE. The covers show a lot of wear and many pages are heavily foxed. But the hinges remain tight, the text block intact, and the book looks attractive on the shelf. A previous owner's name on the front fly leaf along with the date 1858. Bookseller Inventory #
