About this Item

Full title: "Expedition scientifique en Mesopotamie executee par ordre de Gouvernement de 1851 a 1855 par MM. Fulgence Fresnel, Felix Thomas et Jules Oppert." Now here's where things get interesting. Our copy has printed "Tome Premier"; "Premier" has been carefully lined out and underneath written "Deuxieme". In addition below the title "Relation du Voyage et Resultats de l'Expedition" there is an "e" followed by "Livraison". Somebody has written in pencil a "2" in front of the "e". I believe that this is the second printing of the first edition of the second of two volumes that appeared under this title (with an atlas). This volume is certainly one of the most famous as it contains Oppert's decipherment of Assyrian. Our copy was originally bound, and the remnants of the binding are present on the spine which is actually very solid. The front of the original wraps is intact; the back has been lost. The table of contents, pp. 365-66, is complete. The book is clean, tight and unmarked; the pages have some foxing, more so in the very front and back. This book can be rebound and used with ease. The edges by the are finely marbled. Oversize. Bookseller Inventory # 005028
