Our offering is the second edition, published in the same year.

A few pages show light marginal smudging, otherwise the text is exceptionally bright and clean. The binding shows only light shelf wear. A very good copy. Ill.: engraved frontispiece. The binding is 'signed' in tiny letters 'J. Ramage/Edinburgh'. The endpapers are marbled. A most handsome presentation.
