Condición del libro: Good+
Condición de la sobrecubierta: No Dust Jacket
Edición: Presumed First Edition but Undated
NO Date or Edition shown - the consensus seems to be circa 1842 - and as the title page states that "Literary Portion of the Work" is only done by J. Stirling Coyne in this copy, I would assume that this may be a first, and that the copies with the addition of N. P. Willis are later, but I could be wrong. I can find little information on this. In a most attractive, quite sumptuous, full sage green leather, decorated/illustrated on both covers and the spine in gilt. The base colour to the spine has sunned from green to a tan colour, but all the gilt (Irish themed) illustration/titling is clear and bright. The covers' inner and outer edges, all have gilt tooled decoration to the dentelles, and all the page fore-edges are gilt. Some rubbing to the leather, with a little chipping to the bottom of the spine, but overall this is a really Lovely Example of Early/Mid-Victorian Binding - such a shame it is only ONE Volume of TWO. Anyone out there with a similarly bound Volume One ? . NO Inscriptions. Plain lemon endpapers. (6) + 182 pp + 58 full page tissue-guarded steel engravings + a tissue-guarded engraved title page with a large Vignette of Dangan Castle preceding the Printed Title. (All collated and correct as per Illustration list). As usual with this type of book there is some foxing and some marks (light yellow/brown spotting/patching) here and there throughout the book, but it's sporadic, and most of the text is unaffected, it's mainly the edges of the plates. Some plates are more spotted than others and some plates have have hardly any foxing. In the majority though I would say there is far less spotting in this copy than in many other similar books of this type/date I've seen - almost all the pages, and some plates, have almost no spots/marks. Irish views (59) featured in this volume include - Glengariff, Killarney, Cork River, Kilkee, Clifden Connemara, Dublin, Glendalough, The Dargle, Bray, etc, etc. This book is overweight at 1.7 Kilos UN-packaged and MAY require extra postage depending on your location. A handsome copy. See Images. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 113713
