Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece of a Peacock; an engraved title with vignette, and six full-page engraved plates, each bearing two engravings. Original plain wrappers. 12.5 x 8cm. Generally tired and worn; covers stained; some browning and marking internally, and juvenile scribble to the front endpapers; lacks rear endpaper.
