Three-quarter leather bound volume, 16 1/4 x 11 inches; 776 pp. Tightly bound with bumped corners; abraded edges of spine. Centerfolds not tipped in. In many instances, circular library stamp above title on front page. Tears (5 or 6 severe) and paper loss to several pages in margins and elsewhere. Pp 183-186 not present. Innovative (for the era) Christmas Supplement featuring three color plates. The half-year volume is dominated by heavily illustrated coverage of three very different events: the War in Crimea including the fall of Sebastopol; Queen Victoria's visit to France; the visit to London by the King of Sardinia and his reception by the Queen. Extensive full- and double-page illustrations, plus two maps, provide context for the Crimean conflict. The full page map is titled "Map of the Country between Simpheropol and Baidar" and the two page map is titled "Map of European Russia Shewing its Earliest Extent, its Encroachments upon Adjacent Countries, and the Present Boundaries of the Empire." Numerous illustrations record the Queen's visit to France, including the fold-out illustration titled "Arrival of Her Majesty In the Place Du Carrousel, Tuileries" (image size approximately 20 x 30 inches). The illustration, with numerous faults, is in need of restoration. Another fold-out print following the September 1 issue has been torn away with remnants clinging in the binding. Extensive incidental subject matter provides opportunity for engaging illustrations; these include full page views of New York City, Melbourne, and the Universal Exhibition Building, Paris. Other full-page illustrations include the bottling of Champagne; Sketches in Siam; two pages with four images titled Sketches in Nepaul (spelled as it appears); the Dublin Wicklow Railroad; two full page illustrations depicting, in one instance, Indian Manufacture of Fabric of Gold and Silver Tissue and, in another, the manufacture of Fine Muslin; full-page depicting the manufacture of Cocoa; an imposing image titled "The Bank of London (Late the Hall of Commerce, Threadneedle Street)" and many other striking illustrations, including some of the first color illustrations to be featured in the London News.
