Buchbeschreibung London: Lloyd's Greater Britain Publishing Company, Ltd., 1907, 1907. Folio. Original red morocco-textured coated cloth, title gilt to the spine, gilt pictorial roundel to the front board within concentric panels in gilt and blind, edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Lightest of shelf-wear, later gift inscription to the half-title, but a very good copy indeed. Profusely illustrated throughout. First edition. Superb production in the Twentieth Century Impressions series. Loosely inserted galley proof of a contemporary review from the Times of Ceylon: "It may be said with very little fear of error, that the book which has just been published by the Lloyd's Greater Britain Publishing Co., Ltd. is the handsomest and most sumptuous volume which has ever had Ceylon as its subject matter". Artikel-Nr. 120689
