Contents; 6 Coloured maps, 4 are fold-outs, all in good condition with some minor damp staining, one with a small edge tear where attach to book, not affecting map & one minor edge fold & tiny nick. So overall both volumes in original unrestored/repaired condition, with exception of one vol with an old repair to spine. This 2 tome set is now a unique record of Zante, as the Ionian island of Zakynthos (Zante) suffered a series of disastrous earthquakes in 1953 that destroyed almost all the ancient buildings. Therefore today most of the buildings were built or rebuilt after 1953. So this almost forgotten monograph written in 1904 represents a unique record of the history, culture & heritage of Zante ,with many unique photographic plates showing the people and building in 1902-4. The author Archduke Ludwig Salvator, born 1847 (to 1915), was the son of the Grand Duke Leopold II. & Maria Antonietta (daughter of King Franz I. of both Sicily's). Salvator dedicated 2 years to the research of its people, culture and the Islands. This two volume monograph written in 1904 therefore represents the unique historical, cultural heritage and is of inestimable value to the historical record of Zante. Please note; Size approx 28cm (inc. spine) x 34 cm, & 12.5cm thick. The weight of the 2 books is about 6 kilo, there will be no postal surcharge as this is included in Price.
