Condition: Good. Wrappers rubbed, frayed and somewhat soiled. Previous owners' inscription to the reverse of the upper wrapper. Shaken and slightly fragile. Pages lightly age-tanned.

Title page carries 1849 (MDCCC. XLIX. ) but the pasted on title plate to the upper board carries a later date of 1850. Illustrated frontispiece with further drawings through the text. This would appear to be a first edition, and uncommon as such.
