Condición del libro: Good
Descripción Ingram Cooke, 1852. 8vo., First Edition, with a tinted lithograph as frontispiece, engraved and printed titles, and 6 tinted lithographed plates, some light spotting (mainly marginal) as often; original 'National Illustrated Library' series binding of cloth richly blocked in blind, pictorial back gilt extra, hinges cracked (but binding entirely sound), backstrip lightly frayed at head and tail else a very good, tight copy. With the contemporary binder's ticket of Leighton, Son & Hodge (who bound many titles in this series) and the contemporary trade ticket of Willmer & Smith of Church St., Liverpool. This work was translated into English expressly for inclusion in Cooke's popular series following the success of the same author's 'Woman's Journey round the World' (1852); to maintain uniformity the more expensive tinted plates were once again adopted here. In the event, the present work proved even more popular with an audience eager for information from exotic lands, and 'Pfeiffer's Iceland' became a travel standard of the nineteenth century.
