Description vi, [2],94,[2] pages. Illustrated with coloured frontispiece and 11 coloured plates after original drawings by E. V. B. (Eleanor Vere Boyle.). Original decorative blue cloth gilt. Folio. All edges gilt. Re-cased; the frontispiece has slight wear to the fore-edge where the pages were once loose; two of the plates have been very slightly trimmed at the outer edge; binding rubbed and a little dulled; else a very good copy. Printed at the Chiswick Press, the plates printed by the Leighton Brothers, this work is arguably the finest of Boyle's creations.
