1784 [first Irish edition - first published in London in 1781]. Octavo, three volumes of text and a volume of charts, [viii], xcviii, 421 pages plus a frontispiece portrait; [xiv], 549 pages; [xii], 559 pages plus a large folding comparative table, plus the atlas volume containing 26 folding maps and plates. The text volumes are uniformly bound in contemporary full speckled calf with contrasting titling labels; leather a little rubbed at the extremities, with the first and third volumes a little cracked on the front hinge and a little chipped at the head of the spine; Volume 1 has a lightish stain to the left top quarter of the front pastedown through to the title leaf, with a small light tidemark to the blank top margin of the first 20 leaves of the preliminaries and light marks to a few pages; Volume 3 has light marks to a few pages (including the title page), and the blank page before page 1 is grubby. The atlas volume is in similar but unmatched half calf, a little worn at the extremities and with slight surface loss, but recently rehinged; three maps have some visible tidemarks, some leading edges have trifling stains, chips or discolouration, with one more heavily chipped and marked back to the printed border; the first map has a few tears to folds neatly repaired; a more than acceptable example, with the maps and plates paginated for the three volumes of text (and three-volume versions of this work are to be found). Overall, a decent and uncommon set. The contemporary ownership details of J. Griffith (Garn, 1790) are written in ink on the first two title pages, and J. Jones of Ystrad owned the atlas a very long time ago. Beddie 1546. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges. N° de ref. de la librería 84571
