Dozens of woodcuts in the text (from designs by Harden Melville and William Harvey, engraved by H Newsom Woods) together with folding maps of the continents (5 of 6 present –missing Asia). All in all a prize to bring joy to any red-blooded Victorian Grammar School boy. General wear to covers, especially edges and corners. Upper spine joints split and repaired causing some damage to spine head. Lower front joint starting. Foxing, especially near beginning and end of book. 426 pp. N° de réf. du libraire 17406
