First Edition. Bound in 3/4 green leather with marbled boards. Two volumes, each with a frontispiece with tissue guard. Numerous engraved plates throughout, folding maps & plans, etc. Plates & text are both largely free of foxing. The main flaw to the set is rubbing to covers, corners, and spine, although leather remains supple. Amazingly the green color has not faded on the spine. Five raised bands. Internal hinges at marbled endpapers reinforced with burgandy cloth, several owners' names or bookplates. Binding is good only, textblock & plates are very good. First US edition.
