[8], 140, [4] pages, frontispiece, folding plate of the North View, two other plates, and the large folding map, NB: lacking two leaves of text: pages 83-86. Old paper repair - upper board holding because of it but hinge basically blown, and frontispiece nearly detached, toned, and chipped along edges. An unappealing example, somewhat redeemed by the inclusion of Joseph Pote's 1748 'A Plan of Windsor Castle, shewing alphabeticaly at one view...', dedicated to Charles, Duke of St. Alban's, Published at Eaton 1749 [15.5 x 8.8 inches, R. Biggs delin.; R. Parr & J. Smith sculpt., left margin worn; considerably more creased than when found in the quarto History and Antiquities of Windsor Castle].
