About this Item

Dimensions: 22cm x 14cm approx. The full title of this wonderful book is: "The Self Instructor, or Young Man's Companion; Being an Introduction to all the Various Branches of Useful Learning and knowledge: Containing Writing, Grammar, Arithmetic, Astronomy, Geography, Chronology, and Miscellaneous Articles. To Which is Added, The Artist's Assistant; Comprising The Arts of Drawing, Perspective, Etching, Engraving, Mezzotinto Scraping, Painting, Dyeing, Colouring of Maps, &c, &c. A Brief Account of Naval and Military Affairs, Also, Various Useful Medicinal Receipts." This is an extremely scarce volume and an even more scarce edition of that volume. The book is a fascinating overview of what was deemed vital knowledge for the period. 593 pages plus index and two plates of arithmetical figures. Condition: Front cover detached along with front free end papers and frontispiece illustration. Leather covers have heavy wear. Rear cover cracked at hinge and only just attached. Spine covering has very heavy wear and is beginning to split. Internal pages good for their age with light to moderate foxing and a fair bit of yellowing (illustrated pages particularly affected). Main block still tightly bound. Would make a very nice copy with professional restoration. Bookseller Inventory # 000673
