Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Corea, and the Great Loo-Choo Island; with an Appendix, containing Charts and Various Hydrographical and Scientific Notices
London: John Murray, 1818. 1st ed. Hardcover. Very Good. 9 aquatint plates (8 hand-colored, including frontis), 5 maps (2 folding), 1 other uncolored plate (of Wollaston's Dip Sector), xv, [1], 222, cxxx, [72]p. Hardcover in old 1/4 leather, recently rebacked. 28cm. Old leather corners rather worn but attractively touched up when this was rebacked. Half-titles and most of the tissue guards (for color plates) not present. Minor offsetting and age-toning. Color plates clean and attractive as are the maps and charts. Scattered foxing. Written at head of title: "Maria Edgeworth" (in one hand) followed by "from the Author" (in what appears to be another unidentified hand--the author's?). Edgeworth was a successful author of novels and children's books who lived on her family's estate in Edgeworthstown in Ireland. Hall and Edgeworth were acquaintances.
