dc.description.abstractThis is in many ways a standard Weir book, with illustrations often poorly inked. It has the usual 114 engravings, duly tabulated in the list of illustrations at the front. It has the usual preface and life before that. The unusual things about this edition include the eight colored illustrations by Arthur Cooke. I surmise the date of this edition from the /10 after his name on these illustrations. I know of no other book of mine that includes Cooke's work. Also, this seems to be the first time that Ward, Lock, & Co. publish Weir; and what is Harpers doing on the spine? Hmmm.... I did learn in my research this time (from Hobbs) that Weir first published his engravings in 1860. The engraving of his that she presents there is, again in this instance, not the one used here (TB, 23).en_US
