Título: The Natural History of Selborne. ...
Editorial: Constable, Edinburgh,
Año de publicación: 1830
Edición: 1st Edition
Sm. 8vo., with engraved frontispiece, frontispiece and blank preliminaries mildly spotted with some light offsetting to title; most attractively bound in nineteenth-century green full morocco, back with four raised bands, second compartment lettered in gilt, gilt edges, gilt doublures, yellow endpapers, a remarkably bright, crisp, clean copy. The frontispiece, a reduced version of the large folding plate of the first edition, is by Archibald after Ewbank. Lovely copy of the scarce 1830 issue of the first Jardine of the previous year. Unlike the latter, this edition includes the Poems, Observations on various Parts of Nature and The Naturalist's Calendar. In his edition of 1853 Jardine mentions that on the disarrangement of Mr. Constable's affairs, the Miscellany fell into other hands, and 'this edition assumed several forms'. Martin lists issues of 1831, 1832, 1833 and 1836, but nothing for 1830: 'but it would seem probable that there are other forms of this edition still extant'. Jardine himself possessed a copy, exhibited by the Selborne Society in 1913. A BRIGHT, FRESH COPYOF A SCARCE SURVIVAL IN ATTRACTIVE PERIOD BINDING. Freeman p.364/3; see Martin pp.112-116.
