Folding route map frontispiece, xv, 337pp, [2p Allen’s notices]. Original publisher’s red cloth blind stamped and gilt, neat professional repair to what must have been a little fraying at head and tail of spine, upper corners bumped but a very clean copy externally and internally, one gathering is somewhat browned as it seems to have been printed on inferior paper [pages 33-48 shown in a picture]. An excellent copy of an uncommon book with no previous ownership markings.
