About this Item

First Edition. With 28 fine plates, including 16 in colour and 12 in monochrome, and with 34 line drawings within the text, many of which are quite large, decorated title-page printed in black and red. 4to, publisher's original olive cloth-covered boards backed in buckram and ruled and lettered on the spine in gilt, edges untrimmed. xii, 124pp., two leaves ads. A very handsome and pleasing copy, the text clean and fresh, the plates all very fine,the binding solid with just a bit of mellowing or age evidence. VERY UNCOMMON, ESPECIALLY IN NICE CONDITION. Maxwell, an official artist sent by the Imperial War Museum, was a most original writer and traveler, his words sometimes even upstaging the impressive drawings and paintings. His enthusiasm for the area, walking in the footsteps of Sennacherib upon the sacred way to Babylon, is palpable throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 27007
