Edition   First Edition.

Publisher    Wm Blackwood et al. 1813

Seller ID   011359

A very good example of the first edition 1813 of this classic work. The first English translation of the lengthy preface of Cuvier's 1812 five-volume work on vertebrate fossils. "Translated from the French by Robert Kerr with Mineralogical Notes and an Account of Cuvier's Geological Discoveries by Professor Jameson." Printed in Edinburgh for William Blackwood, John Murray & Robert Baldwin. Bound in paper-covered boards, green half-leather with title and date to spine. The two plates present and unmarked. Only mark to the text block is a previous owner's monogram in top corner of title page. Very good condition overall, pages sound with light foxing to the first few. The binding is a cheap one, upon the front of which someone has written in ink the title and date. The book will of course benefit from the full Bayntun-Riviere treatment which it deserves and this is allowed for in the modest price asked for this volume.
