London: Thomas Cautley Newby, 1852. First printing with this title. Hardcover. xi, 388pp, with a frontis portrait, two plates, one folding plan, and 3 folding facsimile letters. Originally published in 1846 as The Prisoner of Ham. The last 50pp consist of notes. The title page and portrait are stained and soiled, and damage to the bottom margins up to p.4 has been professionally made good: contents clean. A handwritten family tree on a large folded sheet has been accommodated in a pocket inside the back cover, and the same early owner's extensive notes on the original rear free endpaper have been bound in. Also laid in is a twist of silken baby hair, which seems likely to have the same provenance. In a recent binding of dark brown half calf with marbled boards, gilt ruled spine with a black lettering-piece. Scarce. VG. Item #18520906
