Numerous illustrations. 8vo, xviii +704 pages, original green cloth blocked in gilt on spine, front and back covers; a.e.g.; spine somewhat browned and punctured one third of the way up. Covers also browning round the edges. Signs that a label was removed from inside front cover. Inscribed and dated by first owner "April 18th, 1848" - - as the dedication by Forster dates from March 1848, this is assuredly one of the very first copies. And it appears never to have been read, being beautifully clean and tight. Poor Olly.
