Please note that this is a heavy item and will require extra postage.; Heavy, dk brown, scored calf boards; a little marked; light edge-wear; corners a little worn; binding very tight. Gilt decoration somewhat rubbed, gilt titling still quite bright. Marbled foredges, marbling a little faded. Bookplate on front pastedown; small cutting pasted to front endpaper, detailing this particular book - probably from a bookseler's catalogue. There are also some inked notes about the woodcuts, on one of the front endpapers, written by an earlier owner - the style of the handwriting suggests early 19th century. Very occasional light spotting, but in general the pp are quite clear. Five full-page woodcuts designed by John Bewick, and engraved by his brother John, in addition to other illustrations throughout the text.
