A Jar of Honey and Mount Hybla

London: Smith, Elder & Co, 1848.

First edition. Original color pictorial paper covered boards with exquisite and intricate designs on both covers and spine, originally decorated endpapers. Illustrated by Richard Doyle. Fragile covers show wear predominantly at outer edges and at spine leaving most, if not all of the pictorial images on both covers and spine in tact, a very rare survival considering the delicacy of the paper covering. At the time of research, we could not locate any other copies in the original binding. AEG. Internally clean and bright.

Price: $450.00   Item #802
