Sonnenschein & Allen's Royal relief atlas of all parts of the world consisting of 31 maps, with physical, political, and statistical descriptions

London: W. Swan Sonnenschein and Allen, [1880]. 4to, pp. [6] followed by 31 maps (25 in relief), each with a descriptive leaf of text mounted on the verso of the preceding map; original green cloth boards stamped in gilt on the upper cover, rebacked in red cloth with (uneven) gilt lettering on spine; very good. ''This book, I think, is very rare. I know of only one other copy in the BM with its acquisition date 16 November 1880 stamped on it. I know of no other edition'' (Sotheby's, Wardington Catalogue, lot 482). In fact, as of January 2021, 2 other copies are on line and there are quite a few in OCLC. Not the first book with maps in relief. That honor goes to Wilkins's A concise exposition of the geology, antiquities, and topography, of the Isle of Wight, [Newport], Isle of Wight, [1859].
