Descripción

Contemporary black straight-grain morocco with gilt ornaments to cover and spine. Folio. Two volumes in one. xiv, (2, plate list), 306; (4), 239, (11, index)pp. Second edition (following the 1807 double-folio original and two earlier 4to reprints). Illustrated with 40 hand-colored plates from drawings by Howitt. Extra-engraved titles to both volumes and with the dedication leaf to George III in volume one. The author served twenty years in India's Bengal region and records his hunting experiences through forty hand-colored plates created by Samuel Howitt. Among the images are several describing pig-sticking adventures; shooting tigers from machans and elephant back; hunting buffalo; driving hogs, bears and wolves; and shooting peacocks and other game. The leather binding is scuffed and worn at the corners, edges and spine tips and has some surface tearing. The hinges are worn but secure. The text is good with some foxing and spotting to the pages and to the margins of some of the plates. There is an early bookplate at the front. The engraved title to Vol. 1 is edge-chipped and partially detached. Scarce. SCHWERDT II, 299. Tooley 510. N° de ref. de la librería 7537
