W. M. Thompson, London, 1873.

Hard Cover. Good. No Jacket. Walton, Elijah (illustrator).

First Edition. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

FIRST PRINTING of First Edition (double volume version of the ALPINE SERIES, and Eastern Series; the book was also published as a single volume (i.e. Alpine alone; at the same time with the eastern and alpine volumes bound under one cover with same cover design as the single volume covers).

The book measures 335mm tall x 244mm, and is paginated as follows:

·       new end papers (all pages have blank versos) + title + preface + half title + list of views + 12 color plates with following three page sequence for each (blank guard sheet + plate sheet on card mount + descriptive text sheet) + page of ads for Walton’s other books) + blank RFEP.

ORIGINAL maroon cloth boards, elaborate gilt stamped decoration and titles on front cover, five stamped borders rear cover with vine and leaf pattern in middle frame, AEG.

Rebacked with new spine material with gilt lettering and rules.

CONDITION: COMPLETE with all pages and plates.

New pale yellow end-pages, some damp staining to the base of the plates – see photos, solid binding (these volumes are always rebound because the book was originally published with a glued binding and not sewn, so when the glue dries from age, all pages break loose), foxing spots on one or two of the plates, otherwise all other plates fine or near fine on the image but may have foxing spots in margins or on mount page, the covers are clean and fresh.

The volume has been misbound – the Alpine series is all bound correctly with one of the eastern text pages at the end of the Alpine set. The Eastern plates are not bound in the right sequence but all pages tissues and text are present.
