London: Longmans, Brown, Green and Roberts [an] Simpkin, Marshall and Co.; Birmingham: R. Davies, 1859. 2nd ed. Hardcover. 2 vols. xvi, 336, x, 317p. Later 19th century 1/2 leather. 17cm. Front joints rather tender. Two bookplates in both volumes -- Salt family armorial bookplate signed by Ernest George Salt and a later bookplate of Melba Peters. EXTRA ILLUSTRATED COPY with 48 illustrations from what appear to have been four other, and presumably earlier, editions of Telemachus which have been mounted on about half of the later and somewhat thicker blank leaves which have been inserted four to a group at regular intervals throughout both volumes. The illustrators appear to have been D. Coster and Lorieux from French-language editions and R. Cooper and J. Scott from English-language editions. Very Good. Item #85704
