Edinburgh and London: W. & A.K. Johnston, 1886. "New Edition" Hardcover. Octavo, original publisher's full brown cloth heavily blocked in black & gilt on front panel, block in blind on rear cover. With 20 tipped in double-page maps [all maps are on guards and can be laid flat without loss], + 23 pp Index at rear. Yellow coated endpapers with publisher's advertising. The original owner (one S.P. Ambrose) has affixed his hand-written school schedule to the front paste-down, and written his name multiple times throughout the volume. Each map is titled in ink on the blank recto of the first leaf; one of the maps (England & Wales) is marked up in pencil; several blank leaves have the child's graffiti / drawings on them. Overall, the effect is quite charming. Being in use with children in British Private Schools, most copies would have perished; a rare survival. A very good copy, overall. Very Good. Item #311005
¶ A rare Victorian children's school atlas; this apparently is the more deluxe and elaborate binding format. There are copies listed in Worldcat, & no copies currently for sale.
