About this Item

Athens: Editions Panorama, 1984. [1],12,[2]pp., plus fourteen plates, 15 3/4 x 21 3/4 inches (thirteen of them tinted, one black and white). Text in Greek and French. Large folio. Laid into original printed green paper portfolio. Portfolio a bit worn. Very light soiling to titlepage, otherwise very clean and fresh. Near fine. One of 1000 copies of this facsimile of the original 1861 edition of Vretos' views around Athens. The original is very rare (Blackmer apparently lacked a copy), and this facsimile is quite scarce in and of itself (and difficult to believe that 1000 copies were actually produced). The plates reproduce the beautiful original lithographs, all but one of them tinted, and are of excellent quality. The plates show scenes around Athens circa 1860, including the Acropolis, Parthenon, the port of Piraeus, the royal residence and gardens, churches, the university, the observatory, and more. This copy is numbered 641. An important series of scenes of Athens in the mid-nineteenth century, in a beautiful modern facsimile. Bookseller Inventory # 714
