Internally resewn, rounded, new endpapers, printed by Church Missionary Society's press in Malta, interesting list of perhaps 400 subscribers, 400 copies? mostly overseas, no inscriptions, lacks map, [12], 523 pp, with an 1865 local Llandudno merchants label to the last blank page, other editions in 1835, 37, 39 and 2007. A lovely copy clean & bright, with only the most minimal foxing, in a superb custom binding. Uncommon. Wolff, missionary and traveller, whose only child, from his first marriage, Sir Henry Drummond Charles Wolff (1830–1908), named after his earliest English friend, had a brilliant career as a financier, politician, and diplomat. Embarrassed by his father's origins and ideas, he never spoke of him and used the name Drummond as part of his surname, preferring to be known as Drummond Wolff. See the ODNB for a full Bio.
