Gold edges to the pages - frontispiece and 3 of the plates are missing their protective tissue paper - this tissue is in place for the other plates. One plate (facing page 170) is missing, it's tissue is present. All the colour plates except the frontispiece are made up of 4 smaller illustrations (see photos). This book belonged to my great great grandmother and her name is inscribed on the inside front cover in very neat hand writing along with a dedication dated new year's day 1841 and. At the back of the book some family dates have been recorded neatly. The outer edge of the spine adjoining the front cover is split - other than this the book is in very good clean condition.
