Book Description printed for Henry Colburn,, London:, 1817. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Second edition.. xiii, (ii), 376pp, with 7 hand-coloured aquatints and a foldout map. Some browning to endpapers, and a little soiling to the borders of some plates and to the adjacent pages: the text and the attractive plates are otherwise very clean. The map has a few false folds, some wear to top edge where it once protruded, and a little soiling. The Preface warns that the book 'contains, we believe, the only exact account which has ever been made publicly known of the private manners and conduct of this African Despot, and it details such scenes and events, it gives such sketches of human weakness and vice, the effects of ambition, avarice, envy, and intrigue, as will seem scarcely credible to the mind of an European.' Quarto, with sprinkled edges, firm in contemporary half calf, spine ruled and titled in gilt, with slightly scuffed and chipped marbled boards. Very nice copy. [Heavy Item].
