First UK Edition with 32 page publisher's catalogue dated 'October, 1884' at the rear of the book. Bound in publisher's red cloth stamped in black and gilt, re-backed with the original spine laid down (please see the photo). When the book was re-backed, it was sewn in the conventional manner, but the pages were originally bound in with metal staples most of which were rusted and loose, hence the rebinding. Binding now tight and square. No marks or inscriptions. A few small tears have been mended with transparent archival tape. Pagination: [i - ix] x - xvi [1] 2 - 438 [1] 2 - 32. All pages present.
