London, 5th October 1879", bookseller's stamp on the rear flyleaf, binder's ticket on the rear paste-down, slight piece missing From the edge of the fly-Ieaf, scuffed patch on the verso of the fly-Ieaf, spine a little darkened & slightly frayed at the head of the spine, corners slightly bumped, string-mark & slight wear to one cover edge, a few slight marks on the covers, otherwise a good copy.

NOTE: This copy has an additional printed leaf entitled "Postcript" & numbered pp (lll) & lV in addition to the pp (lll) & IV of the Preface. The Postscript leaf, dated September 1870, bemoans "the present terrible and sanguinary war" and the effects upon his nurnerous friends in Champagne. "Alas! the homes that I have visited in Champagne, the happiest that I have ever known, are now in grim misery, and despair. The sons of whom I spoke have peri shed in the battle-field. The fruitful vineyards, promising 50 much good return for their careful prunings and able tiIIage, lie crushed under the footsteps of invading armies, and the vines are stained
with human blood, and murdered corpses occupy the scene of the vintagers' happy labours."
