Virtue et Ferrier, Londres & Paris 1838, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 4 (21x27,5cm), relié.

Full Publisher's binding. Half red morocco decorated with a large golden plate special (weapons and symbols of Scotland) with flat sheepskin burgundy stamped a large decorative floral plate cold. Gilt edges. Magnificent, rare binding English publisher, despite some flaws: a slight lack in head of Volume I; head cover of Volume II strongly threadbare; corners bumped and some rubbing to edges. Rare spots scattered pale (almost non-existent on the text), mainly caused by the margins and serpentes but strong on 2 tracks. History of Scotland, its particularities, its monuments ... --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
