London Jones & Co. 1830 Half Calf Very Good 
4to, 11 x 8.5 inches, 28 x 21 cm. 18 pp following by unpaginated plates on card stock, each of which is accompanies by leaf with two sides of text description. Plates do not appear to follow any particular order such as might be suggested by 4 pp list of engravings in rear (separating North and South Wales), but all plates are present. There are two steel engraved images per plate. Curiously a second title page appears roughly in middle of book, and this title bears a different image. It would seem that since this title bears date it was intended for the front. In all there are 114 plates and 226 images capturing the raw beauty, ruins and drama of the Welsh country. The calf spine has some scuffs and vertical streak-like lines from use. Some foxing scattered through the text, with a bit heavier foxing on the first title and a few early leaves. One text leaf (Menai Bridge) with crinkling and discoloration in upper corner not affecting text. Most leaves are clean, with the plate pages having slightly more marginal soilage than is the case with the text pages.
