The Costume of Indostan / Costumes de l'Indostan
Edward Orme, London - large 4to, contemporary green morocco decorated in gilt and blind, all edges gilt; title, dedication leaf and explicative text in English and French, 60 hand-coloured engraved plates; condition: spine expertly restored (using the original spine - with a small piece at top missing from the original); another leather repair to lower right of uppercover, still a rather attractive binding; occasional light spotting and browning (mainly to text leaves), with the plates being clean and colors clear and very fresh; this copy has an undated title page, and its title is "Indostan" instead of "Hindoustan" which usually is taken as signs for being first edition, first issue; yet, one text leaf (dedication leaf in English) is watermarked 1823, and a number of the plates is watermarked 1832; please inquire before ordering
