The first edition illustrated from photographsFirst edition of the fourth year of Jane's most famous and longest-running work, the first edition to be illustrated from photographs. Extremely uncommon, this a very well-preserved copy.
Landscape quarto. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine.
Profusely illustrated with photographs, plans and silhouettes.
A little rubbed, corners bumped, front hinge very slightly loose, front free endpaper and half-title creased, some spotting, but overall a very good copy.
