The Natural History of British Fishes, Including Scientific and General Descriptions of the Most Interesting Species, and an Extensive Selection of Accurately Finished Coloured Plates, Taken Entirely from Original Drawings, Purposely Made from the Specimens in a Recent State, and for the Most Part Whilst Living (Vol. I-V)
London: Printed for the Author and for F. C. and J. Rivington, 1802-1808. Hardcover. Very Good+. Half gilt-ruled red morocco and marbled paper, gilt-stamped lettering and ornament in spine compartments (5 raised bands), t.e.g.; complete set of 5 volumes, 8vo (240x150mm); with 120 hand-colored engraved plates (watermarked 1805). Some very light scuffing along joints and edges of boards. Ex-library, with blindstamps on titles and a few text leaves, a few withdrawal inkstamps. Otherwise, just a little light toning to a few plates -- overall, internally bright and clean, and colors remain true. Plates are striking.
