Five parts (three fascicules) bound into two volumes. 8vo and 4to. 738 + 111 pages; 76 superb plates, 2 folding, 2 folding genealogical tables. Attractively bound in recent half leather and marbled boards with the original printed card covers preserved, green morocco title labels to the spine, gilt. Very Fine condition, a trifle scuffed at extremities, and a few marks to the original printed cover of Tome I, the contents otherwise little used and clean throughout.
