About this Item

London: G.G.J. and J. Robinson, 1791. Quarto, original binding of half calf and marbled boards has had all the leather replaced, and with a "two-thirds relic" of the original leather spine (with black spine label) laid down. 51 pages, with 31 double-spread engravings, eleven of them lightly hand-colored. The large Map of Greece which is Plate One has a few closed tears on the folds, of which some have old tape repairs. Plate 28 is foxed. Otherwise, aside from the offsetting that seems to afflict all copies, the plates are very clean and fresh. Cover is worn at spine ends and corners, but otherwise very good. First Edition. The text, by Barbie du Bocage, is entitled "Critical Observations on the Maps of Ancient Greece: Compiled for the Travels of Anacharsis the Younger." Jean-Jacques Barthelemy (1716-1795) was Perpetual Secretary of the Academie des inscriptions et belles-lettres and Keeper of the Royal Collection of Medals. During his term of office he nearly doubled the size of the collection. In June 1775 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. After the publication of the present work he was elected a member of the Academie Francaise. Bookseller Inventory # 10803
