Edition: First Edition

London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans: 1850. Original blind stamped green cloth, with gilt titles to the spine. Decorative end papers with adverts for Longman's geographical works. Despite the size and nature of this tome - there is not a map or illustration in sight! 1432, 32. pp

Condition: Overall, in good condition. There is a gift inscription from the author to Sir William Johnston, Lord Provost of Edinburgh(his brother) to the front end paper. The green cloth is a little rubbed to the edges, with slight nicking at the corners of the boards. There is particularly rubbing to the edges of the spine, where the cloth is starting to split (although the boards are holding perfectly well behind this. Internally clean and tidy, with just a little darkening. This book has obviously been in the home of a heavy smoker, and smells quite strongly of stale tobacco.
