About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Metropolitan Improvements; or London in the Nineteenth Century: Displayed in a Series of Engravings by Shepherd, Thomas.

Description:

Printed by J. Haddon, Castle Street, Finsbury, London. With an extensive -- and rather sycophantic dedication, dated July 1, 1827, from the author to King George IV. Modern buckram binding, brick red, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering on a black morocco label on the spine. Gently bumped spine head and tail, with fairly sharp corners. Overall a very clean binding. 11.5 x 9 inches. Text block firmly bound in. With two title pages, the first with an engraved vignette, vi and 172 numbered pages of text, followed by approximately 158 half-page engraved plates and one map, plus ii pages of Alphabetical List of the Engravings. Note that the map illustrates "A Plan of the Regent's Park" The map is dated July 28, 1827. The map provides a key to significant buildings in and around the park. The text pages are remarkably free of foxing or spotting, generally speaking. In contrast, all pages for the illustrations are affected to some extent by foxing and age darkening, especially at the outer edges. Many of the engravings themselves are remarkably clean; others have pronounced spotting or age-toning. The first title page likewise with spotting. A front FEP with two previous owner names in neat ink hands. Tiny red ink smear on that same page, fairly trivial. Else a clean volume, and rather tight. Respectfully read. A Very Good Minus copy. Note that the engraving, Temple of the Muses, Finsbury Square, is a clever tribute by the publishers to Henry Brougham, Esq., M.P. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1827 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book.
