Narrative of the Operations and Recent Discoveries within the Pyramids, Temples, Tombs and Excavations in Egypt and Nubia; and of a Journey to the Coast of the Red Sea, in Search of the Ancient Berenice; and another to the Oasis of Jupiter Ammon
London, John Murray, 1821 [second edition]/ .
Quarto, xx (last blank), 533 pages plus a frontispiece portrait, 2 plates of inscriptions and a folding two-section map of the course of the Nile.
Recent antique-style full gilt-decorated calf (by Newbold and Collins); short tear to the map near the stub expertly repaired; inoffensive tiny light stain to the bottom corner and leading margin of the frontispiece and the first four leaves (and by tiny we mean just that); very occasional scattered light foxing; a very good copy.
The last nine pages are 'Remarks on Mr Belzoni's Plates'; they refer to the plates in the separately-issued - and now rare and costly - atlas, not present (as often) with this volume.
