Endpapers browned and heavily creased, some light foxing throughout, but generally fairly clean, a couple of pages including the title, a couple of pages have a bottom corner missing, a few small marginal tears to a couple of the plates and a couple of the tissue guards have been repaired to fore edges.

Housed in a cloth chemise, with a title label. With two short A.L.S.'s from Sir Robert Hermann Schomburgk, dated 1847, declining invitations due to previous engagements.

Large paper, coloured copy (it was also published in a plain, and presumably smaller, state).
