Robert Wilkinson (Privately Printed). 125 Fenchurch Street,
London. 1819.

205 pages of letterpress and another 125 copper engraved plates + 2 pages of contents and an engraved title page. Of which 34 full page plates are of the London theatres of the day, with interior scenes and stage activity with people watching the plays, etc. There are double page plates including a rare Holbein engraving of the Great Fire of London. A few plates have printed tipped in "overslips" showing corrections to the printed text beneath the plate description. CONDITION: The hinges have been repaired, but not recently, there is a very mild spotting to the backs of some plates, not affecting the actual scenes and also on a few pages, there is the odd mark on an odd page or two. Generally VG+. The original old half calf with original marbled paper boards have been retained. And although worn in places, is firm and substantial and heavy. Large quarto. A VG+ copy of a scarce book, published by the author who gathered together in this work some of the rarest views that could be found.
