Attractive hand-coloured lithographed frontis, title and dedication, together with 35 hand-coloured vignettes in the text, 8vo, orig. dec. cloth, a little rubbed to extremities; intricate gilt design to front cover, blind stamped to rear, aeg; recased, new endpapers; housed in a recent purpose-made, cloth-covered slip-case. Margins lightly thumbed in places. Vg. From the library of Paul Sokoloff (1948-2012) with his book-plate to endpaper. Rare. Charming whimsical book, 'intended, not so much for the scientific, as for the young or the comparatively uninstructed reader. The authors have therefore aimed at making them entertaining, rather than complete or systematic; an agreeable bait, in short, by means of which unwary youth may find themselves caught in the meshes of science, while seeking only for amusement.' - Preface.Freeman 3881. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
