With the following points: chapter XXVII on p. 282 instead of p. 283 as listed in the contents; p.16, line 1 & p. 225, line 22 with 'recal' instead of 'recall'; p. 19, 12 lines from the bottom "cha pter ;ut"; p. 387, 6 lines from the bottom 'coroboration' instead of 'corroboration'; p. 472, 13 lines from the bottom, there is no closing of the quotation marks; first state of the engraved vignette title (i.e. dated). Three-quarters morocco gilt. Half-title, frontispiece, vignette title, plates by H.K. Browne. The edges of the title and prelims chipped with small losses around perimeter, the plates generally clean.
