Half gilt-ruled red morocco and marbled paper, gilt-stamped lettering and ornament in spine compartments (5 raised bands), t.e.g.; complete set of 5 volumes, 8vo (240x150mm); with 120 hand-colored engraved plates (watermarked 1805). Some very light scuffing along joints and edges of boards. Ex-library, with blindstamps on titles and a few text leaves, a few withdrawal inkstamps.
