8vo - 23.5 x 15 cm.; xvi - 532 pp. Blue cloth over bevelled boards with reversed gilt lettering and black decorations on the spine, black lettering and decorations along with a gilt silhouette of Pius IX on the front board. First published in 1877 with no date mentioned for this (though obviously later), the stated twenty-fourth edition. Tissue protected frontis engraving by J. S. King of the seated pontiff. Two page, three part appendix at the back. The externals show some very mild shelf wear to the board corners and spine tips with some scuffing to the cloth on the lower fore corner area of the front board. The front hinge has some tearing of the end papers in the gutter though the binding is still solid and tight. The book is otherwise quite clean with a handsome presentation. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
