Bibliographic Notes Our copy: written in pencil inside front cover verso: "225 pounds 2 plates 22 present"; inside front cover recto "50" in pencil. Opposite the dedication (left/verso?): in pencil, someone's signature; ink in other spots throughout. Missing 2 plates: the frontispiece engraving of Scotland, and the engraving indicated "23 Edinburgh from the East" - both look to have been removed after publication – the first may have fallen out, and the second looks like it may have been ripped. The binding cover is beginning to wear, but the writing on the spine - "Newte's Tour" - is still partially visible.
