About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Abyssinia mythical and historical by CHANDLER, Richard.

Description:

8vo. 44 pp. With a folding map. Publisherís cloth with title stamped in gilt on cover, boards worn with some staining and dents; interior clean, map intact and in good condition. With the signature of "R.S. Jenkins, Toronto, May 20, 1903" on the first free endpaper. First edition. Abyssinia, the historical name for what is roughly modern-day Ethiopia, has long captured the European imagination as an exotic and ancient land, mentioned in both classical and Biblical sources. In this overview of the history and literature of the region, the author first establishes the earliest literary appearances of Abyssinia in Homer, the Old Testament (thought to be the land known as Kush), and other venerable texts before plunging into the historical past. Despite the recent unpleasantness between Great Britain and Abyssinia in 1868 (resulting from the imprisonment of British citizens there), the author avoids much probing into current events.This work was originally published in The St. Jamesís Magazine (1861-1882), a monthly periodical of the Victorian period notable for its female editors and contributors such as Mary Braddon, who later founded Belgravia. It was primarily marketed toward middle class women, making Chandlerís work an interesting piece both in terms of content and consumption. Bookseller Inventory #
