Chambers's Parlour Atlas with Descriptive Introduction and Copious Consulting Under W.R.C.
1856, Edinburgh, W. & R. Chambers.
Scarce mid-19th century world atlas, complete with 36 maps, extensive illustrated (woodcuts) text section prior to maps, and long detailed index at rear.
In the original mid-19th century 1/2 leather binding, spine rebacked with matching leather and new gilt title label. Several of the large folding maps backed with linen long ago, perhaps as issued.
Most maps clean, the large folding maps splitting along fold-lines due to brittle linen. Every map is shown within the short video.
Book measures: 10 3/8" H X 7 1/4" W.
