What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding

Translated from the original French by Mr Humphreys. Originally this work was by Noel Antoine Pluche. A widely translated work, Pluche's 'Spectacle de la Nature' was an important work that influenced many to become naturalists and the popularization of the subject. 

Comprising volume II only, which was published and issued separately to volume I. This is part II of Pluche's original work. 

Estc reference no: T131957. 

With an engraved frontispiece, and thirty-four plates.

Collated, complete. 

Four leaves of publisher's advertisements. 

A very bright copy of this fantastically illustrated work. 

Condition

In a full calf binding. Externally, generally smart. Rubbing to the head and tail of spine and to the extremities, resulting in a little loss. Loss to the spine label. Repair to the front board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright. Just the odd spot.

Very Good
