SIMPSON, William
THE SEAT OF WAR IN THE EAST. First Series
Paul & Dominic Colnaghi & Co., London, 1855. Large folio (15" x 22") bound in modern 3/4 green morocco leather with marbled boards and endpapers, a gilt-lettered and decorated spine with five raised bands, all edges gilt. With lithographed dedication and plate list on the verso. Illustrated with a hand-colored vignette title-page and 39 additional hand-colored plates, most retaining interleaved thin paper guards printed with key to the facing image. Simpson's work is impressive "not only artistically and technically, but also as pictorial reporting. Simpson must in this way rank as an early war correspondent" (Abbey, Travel 237). A deluxe copy of the first edition with fine hand-colored plates of the Crimean War. Some foxing, light staining, and toning, plates generally bright and fresh. Near Fine [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
