1822; Plans and engravings; 7 folding; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 334 pages; Hardcover in what appears to be the original trade cloth binding of pebbled green cloth - with paper title label at spine specifying the publisher's price for editions in cloth. Front board detached; all cloth surfaces complete. Damp mottling/soiling to the top 1.5 inches of the upper board, not showing any effect to the endpages or contents. Unusual pagination conforms to the usual [5], 10 - 334 p. Illustrated with 5 plans, 1 folding and 14 engraved plates, 6 folding. Some woodcuts in-text. Final two pages of the book, the appendix, are detached and laid in. Some of the plates with moderate foxing and toning, with expected offset to adjacent pages. Light soiling to some scattered pages. First several leaves are a little furred at the front edge. Bookplate of R W Tyson to the front pastedown. A set of three thread holes in the gutters of the last several signatures suggest an earlier reapir or attempt to secure the now loose last two pages. Perhaps was recased with original cloth early 20th century. Scarce in original cloth - though wanting restoration which could be easily enough accomplished with a rebacking. Good only thus
