Uncolored aquatint dedication and 308 hand-colored aquatint plates with grey wash borders, by and after Daniell, on card and mounted on guards, with the separately published folding aquatint map entitled "Index Chart to the Voyage" (lacking the uncolored "Kemaes Head" engraving, occasional minor spotting and staining). Modern green half morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spines in six compartments, top edges gilt. Provenance: George Haynes (inscription on title of vols. I-VI).
