Title: JOURNEY THROUGH ASIA MINOR, ARMENIA, AND KOORDISTAN in the Years 1813 and 1814 with Remarks on the Marches of Alexander and Retreat of the Ten Thousand
Description: London, John Murray. 1818, 1st. Half-Leather. First printing. Pp. xii, 603, large folding map laid in between p. xii and p. 1, decorated endpapers, octavo format in three-quarters brown calf over red textured buckram boards, spine has five raised bands, with title in second compartment in gilt on black field, ornate stamped gilt in other compartments, blindstamped rules on quarter leather front and back. Label from 19th century bookseller on fep "S & T Gilbert Booksellers 4 Copthall Buildings, London EC." Small, neat 19th century bookplate "Donald Simon Fraser" on fep. A Very Good copy with firm binding, no significant flaws. No significant foxing to leaves, just some offsetting to the margin of p. 1 from the laid-in map. The leather tips are worn through a bit, as expected, with a bit of the boards showing at some of the tips. Very minor wear to the head of the spine, but no significant loss. Map is in superb condition, not worn through at folds at all. It does not appear to have been opened much, if at all. Just some minor soiling to the back from handling while folded. About as nice a copy as one could hope to find of this very rare item. Photos available. Very Good.
