Readers of Milton will find his writing style familiar, as Thomson used his style of vocabulary and inverted word order for interesting wordplay.
There are 6 copperplate engravings present, with four of them being various depictions of the seasons.
One finely bound volume in octavo, 45+256 pages
This volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and wear at the joints and corners. There is little to no foxing and staining.
