London and Glasgow: William Collins, Sons, & Co., 1877. First edition. Original Embossed Cloth Over Boards. Quarto, 59 plates. Signed in ink by a previous owner in 1883 on the title page. Some neat notations in pencil by the same owner on some plates. Very Good, no DJ as issued; some discoloration of endpapers consistent with age. Item #20077
We've had the text volume before, but this is our first offering of the volume of plates. A previous owner apparently did some construction based on these plates, and the pencil notations reflect his experiences and suggestions for improvements.
