Journal of Four Days' Tour in North Wales by a Party of Five.

London: Privately Printed, 1877. First Edition. Octavo. Full leather with raised bands on spine, stamped in gilt. This delightful book features the tale of a family trip to North Wales as told in verse and photography. INSCRIBED by the author (unknown) to an Ellen Pitman and dated in the year of publication. With 55 original mounted photographs, many quite good, albeit discolored along the edges. The typeface throughout is particularly lovely and a good sample of font from this period. Comical woodcuts at the end of each chapter. Only three copies in OCLC, all in the U.K. Leather lightly scuffed, evidence of minor archival repair to the spine, light rippling to pages (likely caused by the mounting of the photographs), hint of foxing; photographs themselves noticeably browned at the edges; a lovely copy overall of a period travelogue with excellent pictures and typography.
