About this Item

4to, 9.5 by 7 inches, 24 by 17 cm. 64 plates, each accompanied by a page or two of description (on separate leaves). Colas 2358. This is derived from the same title published by John Murray in 1814, which itself was based closely on the work published by Miller in 1803 and the plates of Georgi from the 1770s (Colas 1223). Notwithstanding the derivative nature of the plates, as hand-colored stipple prints they are exquisite, with color that to this day springs off the page and delights. Leather on spine is dried out and rubbed by extremities. Rubbing of gutter areas. Boards' leather still healthy. Binding is tight, and notwithstanding some minor scattered soiling of leaves, text and plates overall quite clean and fresh. Gilt foreedges. Bookseller Inventory # 001470
