1786. SAVARY, Claude Etienne. LETTRES SUR L'EGYPTE, ou l'on offre le parallele des moeurs anciennes & modernes de ses habitans, ou l'on decrit l'etat, le commerce, l'agriculture, le gouvernement, l'ancienne Religion du pays, & la descente de S. Louis a Damiette, tiree de Joinville & des Auteurs Arabes, avec Cartes Geographiques. Paris: Chez Onfroi, Libraire, 1786. Second edition, revised and corrected. In three volumes: xii, 396; [iv], 396; [iv], 304pp. Illustrated with four folding, engraved plates: three maps, and one plan of the interior of the Great Pyramid. 8vo., contemporary full calf, lettered in gilt to spine, decorative stamping in gilt to spine and to the fore-edges of the boards, top edge stained. The volumes are quite clean, showing only occasional light foxing; bookplate to front pastedown. One map has a careful paper repair to the reverse. The gilt to the spine has dulled and is worn away in places; there is some rubbing to joints and extremities. Still a lovely and attractive set of Savary's survey of ancient and contemporary Egypt, which is notable for its quotation of scarce and almost unknown Arabic writers. (Brunet).
