MONASTIC AND BARONIAL REMAINS with other interesting Fragments of Antiquity in England,Wales .
Longman, Hurst, Reees et al. 1st edition, London 1816 - Aquatint plates (100) 2 VOLUMES in ONE newer tan cloth with paper spine label (tips rubbed/slightly faded to spine) xii+120pp iv+168pp From the Royal Institution of Great Britain with presentation plate + blindstamp of the Royal Institution on TP of volume one only. There is a small label to show that it has been sold legally by the Royal Institution. The paper is uniformly toned (as originally printed on sl.creamy paper?) and 2 marginal tears not touching any printed area. Slight offsetting from the plates onto the facing text page which is still quite legible and clean, and the edges are a bit rough-cut so that there is some outer edge flaking (less than 1/4" and never anywhere near the print). A very nice copy of this aquatint illustrated book of romantic ruins with trees & often people and carriages etc. 1 volume.
