Description: engraved frontispiece, and further engraved illustrations throughout, many full-page, tiny spot to fore-margin of fly-title, pp. [vii], 123, 24mo, binding of full mid-green morocco by G.T. Bagguley of Newcastle-under-Lyme (so signed on upper turn-in), with a floral border design in gilt to boards, backstrip lettered in gilt with flower decoration, some trivial rubbing to extremities and the backstrip slightly sunned, t.e.g., others untrimmed with a few faint spots, marbled endpapers, very good

Publication Details: [Printed in Paris by Édouard Nelumbo for] George Routledge & Sons, 1894

Notes: Bagguley was a Staffordshire bookseller and binder active from the end of the nineteenth-century through to the middle of the next. This is an attractive binding, quite understated in comparison to the more elaborate work he sometimes produced. It was hitherto kept in the family, by descent.
