London, Werthheim, MacIntosh, and Hunt. 1858, First Edition. Cloth, Lge 8vo. Hardback, 160mm x 260mm tall (6.25" x 10.25" approx.). Pp xvi, 486, with 80 text figs, plus a multi-folding map and and a double-folding illustration from the original illustration of the funeral procession of the Egyptian basilico-grammat, or royal scribe. From the libraries, firstly, of Charles Sarolea, whose signature appears on the front pastedown, and, secondly, Keele University, the small blind-stamp impression of which is to the lower blank margin of the title-leaf. The blank upper free margin of the folding map is dust-stained and has a small archival tape-repair, whilst the spine-label is somewhat eroded. The endpaper joints are weak, but the main text-block is clean and tight. Contemporary green cloth-covered boards rubbed to edges and corners, otherwise a good example of an exceedingly scarce book. The title continues: "and Illustrated by Extracts from Various Works on Antiquities, Geography, Science, Etc. also by Eighty Woodcuts and a Map; with Six Preliminary Dissertations, an Analytical Paraphrase, and Meisner's and Doederlein's Selection of the Various Readings of the Hebrew Text from the Collations of Kennicott and De Rossi" [ Professor Charles Sarolea [ Charles Louis-Camille Sarolea ] (1870-1953), noted Belgian philologist and author who settled in Scotland.].
