London, Smith, Elder, 1839 [second edition]/ 1839. Octavo, viii, 224, [2], [9] (advertisements) pages plus 4 lithographs, 2 folding maps and a folding table. Original gilt- and blind-stamped light brown cloth slightly rubbed and bumped at the extremities; spine a little sunned; minimal foxing to the plates; a most attractive copy.
