A very scarce and desirable near folio, measuring 7.5 x 11.5 inches with old sheep repair over original calf binding; cords just holding and tear to title. If in good condition, the work is $850 - $1250. This edition slightly defective. Textually complete. That said, lacks a few of the plates, i.e. plate 5, 9, 10, and 12. Second work includes at least 3 plates.
A superb work.
