 A VERY SCARCE/RARE ITEM
Published about 1853, containing 39 fine steel engraved views, with tissue guards.
GENERAL CONDITION:  Hard covers are scuffed, with engraved view front & back. Covers and contents are loose, virtually disbound and need the attention of a good Book Binder. Re-stringing might suffice, but in view of the scarcity of the book, it would perhaps be better to take the Binder's best professional advice.
Contents are generally clean & bright, with a little normal scattered age related soiling in places. 98 pages.
Hand written ink inscription dated Sept. 23rd, 1853.

Thanks for looking at this. My name is Julie Bennett and I recently retired to the Bahamas after a career in education in England.

Jacques Bossuet (1627 - 1704), the French Bishop & author, wrote that Geography is one of the principal eyes of History. Such is the fascination of old, historical maps & engravings, that before emigrating, it became my hobby to offer
antiquarian items on eBay & I have decided to resume, hoping to make yet more new friends.
