Full polished tan calf, covers framed in French fillets with gilt corner devices, spine (re-laid) richly gilt in six compartments between raised bands, red morocco lettering piece gilt, top edge gilt, marbled end papers, red silk page marker.

Tooley 419. Abbey, Travel, 166. Grolier Rowlandson 30. "The text, which is by Lewis Engelbach, originally appeared in [Ackermann's] Repository of Arts in the years 1809 to 1813, under title 'Letters from Italy'. No plates appeared with the Repository version, however, except Map Number 2, which was published in October 1810, Part 22, Number 145. The imprint date here has been altered to 1815. The book is often said to contain seventeen or eighteen plates by Rowlandson, but in fact probably only nine are by him, Numbers 1, 3, 8, 10-13, 15 and 16. Of these only Number 1 [the frontispiece] carries Rowlandson's signature." (Abbey) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.
