London: Sherwood, Gilbert, & Piper, 1838. First Edition. half leather. bound in half red leather with marbled paper covered boards, 8vo, cover darkened and shelf worn, but binding is sound. contents generally near fine, but the 6 plates have moderate to heavy foxing, the first plate is in color, the foxing from the plates affects the neighboring pages and there is some offsetting from the plates. The critical examination of chronology is separately paginated from the first part of the book and has pp. 138 while the main part of the book has pp. 427. The front matter of the book has two sections as well with pp. xvi and xviii. one of the front endpapers has a slip pasted down that is written - probably- in Italian and English- there is additional writing on the endpaper with references to other works. All, appear to be of scholarly interest related to this book. There are a few other small pencil and ink markings on the pastedowns and free endpaper. There is also a small old book seller's sticker- appears to say T. Sotheran. Also noted in the book is an old newspaper clipping which has turned brown and affected the neighboring pages. Good +.
