Octavo, viii, 284, 32 (publisher's catalogue) pages with numerous illustrations plus 5 full-page plates (all from sketches by the author) and a folding map.
Gilt-pictorial cloth a little rubbed at the extremities, a little sunned on the spine, and marked on the rear cover; top corners bumped; scattered light foxing; two short tears to the edges of the map expertly sealed; an excellent copy with a contemporary ownership signature ('W.

Tipped in on the title page is a slip from the publishers, who 'have much pleasure in announcing that Her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to accept a copy' of the book.
