Title: 1820s-30s ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT BOOK ...
Publication Date: 1830
Book Condition: Good
On offer is a lovely handwritten manuscript book on Greek history and culture, circa 1820-30s with over 150 pages in a beautiful, calligraphic hand and tightly written. The front cover is absent and there is no title page but we suspect this is a scrivener's work of duplicating an older work or text. Topic chapters include Sylla, Sertious & Eumenes, Pompey, Agesilaus, Niccas, Cleomenes, Agis, Caius Graechus, Tiberias Graechus +. In the upper left corner hard by the edge is what appears to be a smudged and soiled name of ownership which we think is 'Wm. W____'. No date but clearly early in the early part of the 19th century. This 4 by 7 inch book is missing the front cover but is otherwise G+. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 0001271
