London: Chatto & Windus, 1876. First edition with printed colour plates (pp. viii, 264; viii, 266). Large octavo (26 cm) in original publisher's pictorial red cloth, gilt titles and decoration to covers and spines; complete with three maps (one folding), 180 colour plates, 360 figures. Largely unopened, untrimmed edges, the usual plate numbering anomalies; the original, ephemeral gutta percha professionally replaced with modern materials; re-backed retaining complete backs trips, tips worn. This C & W edition was preceded by a very small (and very expensive) edition with hand-coloured plates. Noteworthy for its clean, bright colour plates and bindings. Very good indeed.
