Finely bound in half green morocco over green pebble grained cloth boards, with raised bands, gilt titles and gilt motifs to spine; all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. 38 amusing illustrations by Phiz, as well as illustrated frontispiece and title page. Some wear to edges, and end papers split at joints. Marbled edges faded. Book plate to front paste down end paper. Overall a fine handsome copy.
