BRITISH CASTLES; or, a Compendious History of the Ancient Military Structures of Great Britain
London Howlett and Brimmer, 1825. Landscape folio (c.11 x 8¼ inches). As per the beautifully calligraphed inscription to rear (see photo) this book was rebound in 1959 in half red morocco over marbled boards, with gilt-lettered morocco label to front cover. The corners have possibly been replaced since then. Spine lightly chipped. Preliminaries heavily spotted, and some sporadic spotting thereafter. Staining to top corner of pages from pp. 57 to the end, but this has not effected the plates. A good and attractive copy, the plates nice and clean. pp. vi, 73, (i). With 25 hand-coloured plates behind paper guards. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
