Éditeur : London: John Murray? 1840.
Date d'édition : 1840
Oblong folio, pp. (vi), 14, and 10 plates engraved on zinc (1 hand-coloured plan of the landslip, 1 double-page hand-coloured geological view, 1 hand-coloured geological section, and 7 tinted views including 1 double-page). Foxing on the tinted plates. Original cloth-backed marbled boards (somewhat worn and creased down the centre), printed label on upper cover. Presentation copy from Dawson to one of the subscribers, inscribed in the upper corner of the title ?R.G.S. Tuckett with Mr Dawson?s kind regards? followed by a presentation inscription from Tuckett. SOLE EDITION. A very strikingly illustrated memoir depicting the large landslips on the coast of Devon that occurred in December 1839 and February 1840. The last plate shows the scene of a third landslip that took place nearby in 1790. Another, fully coloured issue exists with two additional plates, but that is exceptionally rare (possibly issued in only 12 copies, all signed). The present issue is itself very scarce, and this copy has a presentation inscription from William Dawson to a local resident and subscriber. Abbey, Scenery, 129. N° de réf. du libraire 2671
