About this Item

Complete with the general series title, the illustrated frontispiece, and the engraved second title-page. The printed title and the general series title are both dated 1837. The engraved second title-page, as in all copies as per Gilson, is undated. Publisher's original reddish-brown cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. There is chipping to the spine ends, more so to the head than the foot, and a couple of other stray scuff marks and spots of wear. The cloth along the top two inches of the rear joint is worn through. The endpapers at the front are white while those at the back are yellow, but both are seemingly original. Internally, there is some spotting to the frontispiece and engraved second title-page, a small bookplate on the front pastedown, and some discoloration to the rear endpapers, else the book is quite clean. Preceded only by an 1833 Bentley printing, the First American Edition of 1832, and the First and Second English Editions of 1811 and 1813. According to Gilson, few of these Bentley reprints "survive in libraries, and even fewer in original condition." The only copy of this printing in original cloth recorded by Gilson in his bibliography was his own. A Good Copy, and quite scarce. Gilson D7. Bookseller Inventory # 000148
