The title page continues after "Sicily" - ", and The Maltese Islands, with The African Coast, from Tangier to Tripoli, inclusive; including descriptions of the coasts, towns, islands, harbours, and anchorages; occasional sketches of national habits and customs; the general products, population, and condition, &c. of the respective places". The Preface states that that this 1840 "improved edition" is of a work that first appeared in 1826. This book is in very good condition, showing little handling, being in a theological library. Bound in the publisher's original paper boards, with cloth spines. Slightly rubbed spine label. Both the spine and the covers have good, unworn edges. The very clean covers are perfectly attached without any cracking. xvi, xlvi, (1), 208 very clean, crisp and tightly bound pages with very little foxing. The library has a label on the lower spine, a bookplate on the inner cover, no stamps on either the title page or on the copyright page, and a modern barcode on the back endpaper. There are a few small illustrations in the text, but the book does not contain any maps or charts. We are also separately selling the second volume which covers the eastern Mediterranean.
