A good copy of this rare work, complete with Thompson watchpaper.
Gilt embossed boards, 195 pages, numerous line drawings. Published for the author by T & W Boone, first and only edition, 1842.
Adam Thompson, with a shop at 25 New Bond St, London, was one of the more interesting watch retailers of the period. This book was issued, no doubt, in order to promote his firm, but it is not without merit. Some copies are known to include a Thomson watchpaper / tradecard pasted inside, of which this has a good clean example.
Boards showing some discolouration and the spine partly split (no loss) from the spine and held by tape. Otherwise a good example of this rare work.
