Book Description

Fourth edition. Roscoe version A with no mention of Rivington. The Royal 8vo. printing which Roscoe suggests had only 300 printed. Pp. x. 525 (1). Tan half-calf, all edges gilt, with marbled paper boards and matching marbled endpapers, contrasting labels, slightly rubbed to edges and corners but a nice example. A rare printing of this important expanded edition which features animals for the first time, including the addenda with the Australian Wombach and an Amphibious Animal (platypus).
