About this Item

First U.S. edition, in an uncut copy in the original publisher?s binding. Emerson, who added the Tennent surname in 1831 and was knighted in 1845, here describes his travels through Greece and Turkey in ?characteristic sketches of manners and scenery? (p. iii); a great supporter of Greek independence, he considered the present work more ?picturesque than political? (ibid.). The six pages of advertisements offer multiple reviews of the Harper works listed, not just publication information! Provenance: Front free endpaper with ex libris inscription initialed ?GRW?: William [Guillelmus] R. Whittingham, Bishop of Baltimore. 8vo (23.8 cm, 9.4").

Publisher?s quarter cloth and paper-covered sides, spine with printed paper label; binding faded and worn, spine label chipped and darkened, rear hinge cracked but binding solid. Front pastedown with institutional rubber-stamp, no other markings; pages untrimmed, and foxed throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 20260
