Item Description

FIRST EDITION 8vo. 9 x 5.5 inches. x +197 pp. Illustrated with title vignette and 7 steel engravings. Original cloth with the original paper label to the spine (a little chipped). Title and frontis a little foxed but a very good copy. The original edition of this rare history, the list of subscribers indicates the publication of no more than 250 copies. The charming frontis plate shows a balloon in flight in the background. A facsimile reprint was produced recently which although very well produced lacked the charm of the original, even the reprint is out of print now.
