London: Chapman and Hall 1844. 8vo. Contemporary half calf (recased; extremities a little rubbed). Spine with raised bands and morocco titling-label. Edges marbled. (xvi 624pp.). With engraved frontisp. additional engrv. illust. title-page and 38 full-page engraved illusts. by Phiz. The plates are extensively foxed the text less so but this is not uncommon to other copies inspected. With the errata-slip. A nice copy of the 1st ed. first issue. NOTE: "The first issue of the first edition had a test growing out of a peculiar error by the artist. On the vignette title page is a reward notice on the sign-post he transposed the offer so as to read 100 pounds. This was not altered until a number of copies had been printed. The corrected copies thus became second or later issues of the first edition". (See Echel pp.68).
