VG- first edition in full leather binding. For a period of 14 months during 1876 & 1877 Uppingham School decamped en masse to Borth on the coast of Cardigan Bay because of fears of a typhoid epidemic at the school. In 1878 this whimsical account of this period was published and became quite popular. This copy is bound in green letter with gilt lettering and the school crest in gilt on the front board. The spine has 4 raised bands and floral pattern tooling with a dark red title label. Maroon patterned endpapers and marbled edges to the text block. The corners are rubbed and there are some scuffed areas on the spine but otherwise the book is very good throughout. There is a presentation inscription on the reverse of the front fly-leaf and another signature on the half-title. Rare in this binding. N° de ref. de la librería S4436
