First fully illustrated U.S. edition with 94 illustrations--including frontispiece, title page illustration, and one map--91 of which are full-page plate engravings by Meyer and Barbant.

Pale yellow endpapers, red cloth binding ornately decorated in black and gilt, with illustrations on front and spine. Flaking to the cloth and small hole to front endpaper due to insect damage, which is too bad as it is otherwise about very good with some light soiling but gilt bright, hinges cracked but binding still tight, light foxing to endpapers, contemporary gift inscription on front endpaper, etc. A relatively attractive copy despite the wear.
