Scarce. 750 copies of each volume were printed. A classic work with fine colour lithographic plates (30 double-page) drawn from life by the authors. (Plates numbered I-XXX, A-D). 'Although the text is now out of date, it is still useful, and the fine illustrations can never be replaced.' - Freeman & Wertheimer. A Supplement was also published in 1889, but is not included here.

Freeman & Wertheimer 170.


Bound in two volumes, Text and Plates. General and Volume titles present (Volume title for second volume bound following General title for plates), imp. 8vo, cont. half-morocco, raised bands, gilt tooling to spine, teg, marbled boards and endpapers. One page torn (without loss) and professionally repaired. A very good set, without the later Supplement.
