About this Item

Missing 11 engravings (of 20). Contains 9, bright, hand-coloured engravings: - Plate 1 = "Flint Castle"; Plate 3 = "View On The River Dee (View Of The Dee, Near Corwen)" (with a small margin tear); Plate 6 = "Caernarvon Castle" (one corner of the margin missing); Plate 8 = "Llanberris Lake and Dolbadron Castle"; Plate 9 = "Moel Shabod, Near Capel Curig, On The River Llugwy"; Plate 17 = "Bala Lake"; Plate 18 = "Tal-Y-Lynn, Merionethshire (Near Tal-Y-Lynn)"; Plate 19 = "Goodrich Castle (West Tower Of Goodrich Castle, Herefordshire)"; Plate 20 = "Interior Of Goodrich Castle". Sometimes the title of the text page differs slightly from the engraving's title. Besides the missing engravings, some of the facing texts to those pages are also missing. All the engravings that are still in the book have their facing text pages. Bound in the original 3/4 black leather, with soiled cloth boards. The spine and the covers are still well attached with the edges being slightly rubbed. Still large, bright gilt lettering on the spine - "Views In North Wales". The pages are all disbound and are loose. Generally clean pages with small stains to some of the borders of the plates. Some of the text pages have small edge-chipping. Bookseller Inventory # 11720
