Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1841.
Hardcover. First American edition, first issue, with two title pages. Octavo. , vi, 9-362pp., with a frontispiece plate etched by J. Yeager, and ninety-one illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot Browne. John DePol's engraved bookplate on the front pastedown. Original publisher's cloth, gilt spine. Binding is clean and bright but fair only, with the backstrip neatly split along the rear joint, and both boards nearly detached underneath the pastedowns at the hinges; else internally very good and sound. John DePol, a noted American wood-engraver, would have appreciated the large wood-engraved illustrations by Cattermole and Browne; all are bright and well-preserved early impressions. A scarce first American edition with a nice association.
