16mo 6" - 7" tall; 444 pages; Publisher issued pebbled brown cloth with decorative borders deeply impressed to cloth at board edges. Gilt titling and decoration at spine dulled (as usual with these pebbled cloth bindings) but readily legible. Binding sound though two signatures start slightly at front edge. This scarce early example, after the original 1859 Nelson issued 1st edition, retains the original endpages. Prior ownership bookplate to front pastedown, along with several successive penned ownership inscriptions. Illustrated with several engraved plates. Light rubbing and mild fray to cloth at spine ends and lower front corners. Some expected fading to cloth at spine panel. Solid and decent copy, quite uncommon in the earliest printings prior to 1880. G++ to VG-
