Hugely Extra Illustrated
Whellan (William.) Ed:
The History and Topography of the Counties of Cumberland and Westmoreland... By Thomas Wright, J.G.Cumming, Harriet Martineau., London, Whittaker. 1860
Usually a single unillustrated 4to volume of some 900 pages, this has been bound in 2 very substantial 4to volumes contemporary red half-moroco, gilt, rebacked using original backstrips, a little worn and soiled, inner hinges roughly repaired probably by the same competent amateur hand who has EXTRA ILLUSTRATED the work with some 200 mounted plates, some folding - copper plates, steel plates, aquatints, etchings - perhaps a few have worked loose, a few minor repairs or defects. Internally a little dusty along the rather uneven edges. An impressive collection. Unique.
