1869 and 1871 respectively. 225x150mm, unpaginated (approximately 200 pages), illustrated throughout with chapter head vignettes and lovely hand-coloured plates with tissue guards, bound in original cloth with ornate gilt stamp lettering and embellishement on the front cover and spine, and blind stamp embellishment on the rear cover. A good antiquarian pair: some slight balding of the cloth in parts, weakening of the front hinge and some splitting of the cloth at the spine, as well as fadding and mottled wear of the spine. Internally, there is some very minor foxing of the far extremities, but by no means detracting from the overall impression that the set is bright and clean. Additionally noted: some penciling of the margins of the index. A beautiful antiquarian pair.
