Published by Moss Bookseller, Guernsey, with some plates stating Day & Haghe Lithographers to the King, printed by Hullmandel. Black half morocco binding with green marbled boards, paper label with gilt lettering to the front board. Leather spine later, some rubbbing to boards and edges of boards. Contents excellent - clean and tight, paper bright and fresh with NO foxing, very slight wear only. This collection of views was probably published for the tourist market and would appear to have been issued in a number of formats, with a greater or lesser number of plates and typically there is no title page. It is a very rare publication and we have been unable to find any auction records for this particular collection; we have only been able to find two library records and then one of these is for a similar publication.. Half Leather. Very Good. 4to Landscape.
