    Description

    First edition of The Naturalist on the River Amazons by noted British naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates.

    Octavo, [two volumes], 351pp [32pp ads]; vi, 423pp. Brown cloth, title in gilt on spines, illustration stamped in gilt on front covers. Red endpapers. Binder’s ticket on rear pastedown endpaper of Volume I. Spine ends and edges rubbed with some loss of cloth, corners bumped and worn, light soiling to covers. Slight lean to text block of Volume II. Light foxing to preliminary and ending pages of both volumes and fore edge of Volume II. All illustrations present, including 1 fold-out Map of the Amazons (3 cm tear along top edge with light wear along fore edge). Volume I lacking Preface, Table of Contents and List of Illustrations, appears to be a publication error. No notations except for the previous owner’s name written on front endpapers. In Volume I, endpapers and text block cracked in a few places, but binding is sound, also a few chips and tears along page edges. (Sabin 3932a) (Wood, p. 225) A good example of this travel account to the Amazon rainforest.
