This copy has been re-spined at some point in the distant past, and although the boards are a (presumed) contemporary full tree calf, the re-spining is in a heavy tan 'buckram' with a large, but attractive, leather Title label in dark burgungy with bright gilt titling and decoration. The covers are somewhat worn and scratched, with the corners and some edges of the book scraped through to the board, but it is solid, tight and all hinges are secure. The front pastedown has the attractive heraldic bookplate of 'Lord Bulkeley'. Both inner hinges have been strengthened with a buckram tape. (2), viii, + 634, (2)pp. Including the Frontispiece the book is Illustrated with 12 Full page Tinted lithographs of South Wales views.
