Some mellowing as would be expected, a bit of minor aging to the binding. An unusually pleasing copy. A simply lovely early 19th century edition of White's charming work in impressive quarto format as the first edition. A copy with a full selection of engraved plates. "Open the book where you will, it takes you out-of-doors. In simplicity of taste and natural refinement [White] reminds you of Walton; in tenderness toward what he would have called the brute creation, of Cowper. He seems to have lived before the fall. His volumes are the journal of Adam in Paradise" (Lowell, quoted in Grolier 100, 124). Bookseller Inventory # 27358
