New York: Publisher by J.& J. Harper, 1831.

Square duodecimo, 222 pages, [2] ads. Illustrated with ten wood engravings of carving in the text. First edition. With a fascinating and angry introduction by the author, with much ire directed at the "barren, inhospitable country" of Scotland. Some light soiling throughout, but textblock tight and pages supple. Pencil scribble to rear blank. In publisher's pale green paper covered boards, with one quarter red morocco, neatly rebacked. Generally near very good. [OCLC locates nineteen copies; Lowenstein 148; Bitting page 440 (cites the second edition of 1835); not in Cagle or Brown].
