JAMES BOLTON

An History of Fungusses, Growing About Halifax... Volume I - Volume III, plus Supplement [Volume IV]

Published: for the Author, Halifax:

Date: 1788 - 1791

4to. 4 volumes in one [complete]. 4to. pp. engraved title, xvi, 44, [2]; [xvii] - xxxii, [45] - 92, [2, xxxiii - xxxiv]; [xxv] - xxxii, [4], 93 - 138; xxxiii - xlii, 139 - 182, [12, index generalis]: 182 sepia plates. Nineteenth century half calf, one outer joint a little split but an excellent sound copy. There exist coloured copies, which according to Boyne are on the best Royal paper, the uncoloured copies being on inferior paper. However this copy is on quality laid paper and has wide margins [page size 11 x 8½ inches] leading me to belive that this is one of the better copies which remained uncoloured. Complete copies are uncommon.
