Original boards, borders richly gilt tooled. Spine richly gilt tooled as well with 5 raised bands and the titles in the second and the fourth compartment. Original marbled free end pages preserved.
Boards rubbed, upper board-edge of Vol. II bumped and very light foxing to some of the plates. A small stain on the fore-edge of the last pages of Vol. II, not bleeding into the margins of those pages.
These volumes together contain 7 aquatint plates h.t. by Newnham and 9 vignettes and hence are complete as per the list of illustrations.
Volume I is mainly dealing with Europe and Turkey, while volume II almost entirely is devoted to Egypt, with a smaller part dealing with Arabia.
