Description:

A very good copy of the 1st and only edition of this work in 2 volumes with an inscription by the author in Vol I. Vol I published 1890; Vol II published 1891. A comprehensive and exhaustive work on oysters covering history, varieties, cultivation, cooking etc. The author originally intended to complete the work in a single volume, but gathered so much material that this was not possible. There is a small slip at the beginning of Vol II which explains this and why the pagination and chapters run continuously through the work. This copy is in the original blue decorative cloth bindings with gilt and black titles to the front boards and a black lined illustration, and gilt titles to the spine. The bindings are both bright and clean with some pulling to the spines and light wear to corners and edges including joints. Both have the original endpapers which are unmarked. There is an ownership signature to the reverse of the fep of both volumes and the author's inscription: 'With the author's kind regards June 1891' to the top of the title page to Vol I. Contents are very clean: there is a little spotting to foredge in both volumes. A very scarce work. Bookseller Inventory #
