About this Item

Four volumes, octavo, original publisher's Roxburghe-style binding of quarter brown roan and brown paper-covered boards, spines gilt lettered with "Six Guineas" at foot of each. Only quite minor scuffing to spines; slight surface rubbing to boards; front inner hinge of Vol. I cracked but firm, not separated; scattered foxing, mostly light but not so light in places; else a fine copy. Complete with all 25 steel engraved plates, 26 vignettes in text. The translation was by Mary Smirke, the artist's daughter. Robert Smirkie (1752-1845) was an English painter elected to the Royal Academy in 1791. He did many popular book illustrations - pleasing, graceful, sometimes humourous, accomplished, and spirited. Quite a nice copy of a book that is not often seen in the original binding, especially in such nice condition. Note: 4 kg parcel, extra shipping will be required. Bookseller Inventory # 33770
