With a tipped in bookplate of a 'Richard Deaves Hammond' to the front free-endpaper. Collated, complete with twelve full page plates, eight of which were in colour. The coloured illustrations are from contemporary prints and paintings by such notable artists as J. F. Herring, James Pollard, and Henry Alken. The black and white illustrations are facsimile reproductions from the originals by Tom Smith in the earlier edition of this work.
