New York: John Wiley and Sons, 1889. Hardcover. vi, 217p., numerous wood-engraved graphics and a small folded plate laid in, first edition 9x6 inch marbled boards under quarter-leather trim (raised bands, good bright titling), marbled endsheets, a custom job well-executed and quite sound. Inscribed by author the year of publication to one N. G. Hilton Esq. A bit edgeworn and scuffed (saddle soap, then black or dark blue Meltonian shoepolish would work wonders), a very good copy.
