London: Printed for John Murray, 1814. Early edition. Hardcover. Quarto (4to). Very good- condition. Item #017049
Three quarter leather bindings, rebacked with calf and new red leather spine labels. The original boards are somewhat worn and rubbed. There is minor foxing scattered here and there, with some soiling, and a few page edges have dark stains, not affecting the text or the plates. The color plates are hand-colored. China has 50 plates; Turkey has 60, Russia has 64, and England has 50. First published in 1804, slightly later editions such as this one were expanded to include additional plates.
