Sixteen finely executed illustrations, mounted and protected by part-printed paper overlays, contained in a later, half-calf, silk lined portfolio. The portfolio has raised bands, spine in four panels, panels bordered with gilt single rule, volute corner pieces, title in gilt to second panel, illustrators to third, place and date to fourth, silk ties to each edge.

Rubbed to extremities, spine very slightly faded. Title page chipped and quite heavily repaired, slightly grubby with several small closed tears, the list of illustrations leaf is again chipped, with repairs to edges. The part-printed overlays are lightly foxed and browned to edges, chipped to top edges, one or two spots of foxing to the mounts, the illustrations are all bright and clean.
