London: Chapman and Hall, 1843. Second edition; 12mo, pp. [8], 166, [2] ads; 4 hand-colored etchings by John Leech and 4 textual illustrations by W. J. Linton after John Leech; title page printed in red and blue, half-title and printer's imprint printed in blue; "Stave One" on the first page of text, yellow-coated endpapers; original ribbed reddish-brown cloth lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover, a.e.g.; the binding slightly faded; otherwise a very good, sound copy, unrestored. Bookplate of the rather eccentric Reginald Huth (1853-1926), "sometimes described as ‘a gentleman of leisure’ but his actual occupation is not known for certain – the Huth family were best known as financiers in the City of London. According to one source, he was ‘the London representative of the Bank of Spain’ though what he actually did in this role is unclear, since he seems to have been pre-occupied with collecting English, Spanish and Russian coins and medals" (oldcurrencyexchange[dot]com). See Gimbel A79 and Smith II, 4; Sadlier 684 (for the first edition of the same year). Item #58652
