About this Item: G. & C. Carvill, New York, 1828. First American edition of Irving's somewhat fanciful yet readable work on Christopher Columbus. Irving notes in the preface "the sight of disjointed papers and official documents is apt to be repulsive to the general reader" so he has decided to create a narrative rather than simply translate pertinent documents related to Columbus as originally asked. This edition comes with a => large folding map of Columbus' route through the Bahama Islands. Binding: Gorgeous 19th-century acid-stained autumnal binding: Covers framed with a gilt floral roll and brilliantly crossed with bands of walnut brown, ochre, deep green, russet red, black, and grey, all => very bright. Spines gilt extra with compartment devices and multiple interesting rolls, and bearing black leather gilt labels; board edges touched at corners with gilt; marbled endpapers. Provenance: Signature of Sam Baird on front endpaper and title-page of vol. I and half-title of vol. II. As described in the BAL, signature sign 6 is not present on p. 41 in vol. I and the last page of vol. III is unnumbered. 8vo (22 cm; 8.625"). 3 vols. I: xvi, 399 pp., 1 folded map. II: viii, [1], 10?367. III: viii, [1], 14?419, [1] pp. BAL 10124. Bound as above, bindings moderately rubbed with one sliver of leather lost at a joint and a small patch lost near the bottom of one back cover. Age-toning, foxing, and some other spotting; some corners creased (some corners improperly trimmed during manufacture. Inscriptions as above, light pencilling on endpapers of one volume; map wrinkled with some old light staining and a tear repaired some time ago from back, with cloth tape ? folds strong. => A classic semi-historical work most strikingly bound.

About this Item: Paris A. and W. Galignani 1828, 1828. 4 volumes. First edition published in France. The book was published in England in the same year. Two large folding maps. 8vo, contemporary dark-blue half calf over marbled boards, the spines with red and black morocco lettering labels gilt, raised bands gilt ruled. xvi,472; viii, 517; viii, 434; vii, 513 pp. A handsome set with light aging or light rubbing at the tips, clean and very well preserved lettering labels refurbished at some time. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION, Paris printing. This was a scholarly but popular biography based primarily on the work of the Spanish historian Navarrete. Navarrete had published his work on Columbus, which contained a number of previously unknown and significant documents. However, Irving felt that "the whole presented rather a mass of rich materials for history, than a history itself.[and] the sight of disconnected papers and official documents is apt to be repulsive to the general reader, who seeks for clear and continued narrative." In fact, he felt that nearly every account had been incomplete while many important documents and manuscripts ignored. Thus, he hoped to offer a more rigorous and yet accessible account. Written while Irving was a diplomatic attaché in Spain (1826-29), "it was the most painstaking effort of Irving's life, and it won him election to the 'Real Academia de la Historia', the friendship of Navarrete, and a literary reputation in Spain where the work is still quoted respectfully" (DAB). The American edition, published the same year in three volumes, had only one map. BAL A testament to Irving s often-neglected gifts as a historian. Seller Inventory # 14872
