The binding very handsome and solid, but with some minor faint stains to the boards and some wear to the leather along the hinges and extremities. SCARCE LARGE PAPER COPY IN DELUXE FULL MOROCCO PRODUCED FOR HATCHARDíS BY ONE OF THE IMPORTANT LONDON BINDERS. This "humorous month in the countryside" contains some of Thomsonís most delightful and saucy works.

His lovable, yet utterly ridiculous, personality gave Thomson opportunity to unleash his full whimsey in what is unquestionably the most humorous of his illustrated works.
