Modern half blue morocco, first blank and title-page foxed, otherwise a very fine copy. A very scarce companion volume to the colored version, both issued by Quaritch at the same time. This is a made-up copy with most of the plates very finely colored but with 2 plates uncolored and the text for the uncolored issue present rather than the (different) text for the colored issue.
