London: Richard Bentley & Son, 1885. First ed. 8vo. viii, 468 pp. Illus. from lithographs, sepia or full color, plates. "Starting out with our Old Highways ... I have proceeded to show how our roads were improved, and the results of such improvement as regarded increased speed in traveling ... I have gone on to the change when railways superseded the coaching system, and thus brought me into the position of being a chronicler of reminiscences of past things which can no longer be seen in actual existence" (from the preface). Very good. Later three-quarter red crushed morocco (spine somewhat darkened) and cloth, spine with gilt title and coaching ornaments between raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, by Bayntun Rivière. (#8404). (Inventory #: 61334)
