London: Published for James Watson by Frederick Farrah. Later Edition. Hardcover. Mid-to later 19thC edition, likely 1850-1870s. 8vo, blind-stamped, green ribbed cloth, gilt spine titles, yellow matte endpapers, vi, 202, 32, (8), frontispiece, two foldouts. Modest loss spine foot, corners gently worn, solid binding. Of the many editions of this important work first published in France in 1791 and partly translated by Thomas Jefferson , OCLC lists only 1 copy with Frederick Farrah as printer, and dates it 1900. This copy is undated but the binding suggests a binding typical of much earlier, plus there is an owner name dated Shanghai February 22 '76 which by period script and century could only refer to 1876.
