About this Item

This volume contains the first book of the Histories of Polybius ("Geschichte des Polyb") "zwenter theil" only. And also, An Essay on the Assault and Defense of Ancient Sites ("Abhandlung von dem Angrisse, und der Vertheidigung der Platze der Alten"). 8X10 1/2 inches, leather bound, the 18th century leather covers are worn but the book is tightly bound. This volume is graced by 38 engravings, 22 of which are triple-fold. They depict fortifications, war machinery, defense sites and assaults in ancient times. All by a master engraver. There is browning of the text, and a continuous water stain at the bottom of the pages, which however does not reach the margins of the plates. Of the 22 triple-fold plates, several of which have never been opened, 7 exhibit some browning. Of the 16 single page engravings, 8 exhibit browning. Though there is some toning of the plates, given their age, the stunning plates are in decent condition. Bookseller Inventory # 000264
