Fly-leaf inscription by the original owner "N Semple" dated 1858, and reference inside to the wood-cut engravings from a German illustrated edition dated 1842. The front and back cover panels are stamped in blind red with dramatic patterns, showing signs of rubbing/storage and the spine is stamped in gold (possibly gilt or leaf finish). Page end papers on all sides - top, side and bottom are gold edged. Six wood-cut engraving prints inside. I don't think this has ever been read, it's in such fabulous condition.
