Dublin: Published by J. M'Glashan, 1848.

16mo, [7]-320 pages. Frontispiece, and wood engravings throughout the text. Index. Bills of fare. This unrecorded Dublin state may follow the London issue of the same year by W. Brittain, but the pagination is identical, and the printer, "J.S. Pratt, Printer, Stokesley, Yorkshire" is the same for both, so we can claim no knowledge of priority. Faint tide line to a few pages, otherwise internally clean and sharp. Bit of flyspecking to original, attractively blind-stamped tan cloth. Text block untrimmed. Very good, and rare in this original printing. [OCLC locates no copies of this printing, and just four copies of the London printing and four copies of the second edition of 1850; not found in any of the relevant bibliographies].

Price: $900.00
