Published By: P. Chubb 1824 (London)

Hardback contemporary half leather binding with marbled boards. Gilt tooled title band to spine. It appears the original endpapers have been retained, fep inscribed neatly dated 1882. Engraved half title. 'Illustrated with nearly Sixty well-executed Copper Plate Engravings of the Human Figure' which are after the text to the rear of the book. A little rubbing to cover and bumping to corners. Chipping to lower edge of title band not affecting text. Tape residue to gutter. Pages toned to edges and thumbed throughout. Occasional foxing and infrequent neat marginal annotations. Cracking to rear gutter. Pages otherwise clean and the engravings are clear and relatively crisp. Overall very good condition. 80 + unnumbered amount of plates approx 60 pp. This is an incredibly rare book, with only one other known copy held at Yale University. Intriguing and beautiful book.
