London: John Weale, 1849. First edition. Decorated Boards. 12 mo (4 1/4 X 7), pp. xiii, 118, illustrated with 100 b/w illustrations but (as with most copies) lacking the atlas. Signed and dated (1857) on fep by a previous owner. Very Good. Item #18915
A wonderful and early treatise on the subject. Like all trade pieces from this era, very scarce.
