SCARCE IN WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. An elusive title in the group and one of the best on the Isle of Wight. Item #29867

Folding coloured map at the end of the volume. 8vo, publisher's lovely decorated cloth, the upper cover gilt lettered within an all-over design of Scottish thistle and heather in green, brown and purple, the spine likewise decorated, t.e.g. viii, 176, 4 ads. pp. A pleasing copy, quite well preserved, with a little mild mellowing or age evidence, the cloth, colours and gilt all very well preserved indeed.
