xvi, 315pp, [1], 48pp adverts, original decorative cloth, title in gilt to spine and upper cover, gilt illustrations of various parts of the journey to upper cover, a.e.g. Rubbed to extremities, slightly chipped to spine ends. Inner joints repaired, internally some light marking, mainly to margins, previous owners gift inscription to front endpaper, but generally fairly clean. Now housed in a cloth drop-back box made by Temple Bookbinders, with the title in gilt to the spine. The first English edition, with the title dated 1873 (rather than 1874 as is usual), scarce thus. Variant (presumably later) issue of Myers 54 (calling for green cloth and a 32pp catalogue dated 1872), this in blue cloth with a 48pp catalogue dated October 1873. Myers 54
