An Atlas to Guthrie's Geographical Grammar
- A leather bound collection of around 28 maps/plates most of which are double paged and some folding out as well. All appear present judging by the contents list and helpful light pencilled notes of a previous owner who has obviously collated the maps. Leather spine and corners and paper covered boards. Much of the leather and paper has been quite severely rubbed away and the front board is loose, having had an attempted repair at some point in its history. The front board has become detached. Owner inscription of August 1800 in neat ink at the top edge of the front end paper looks to be original and authentic commensurate with look and age of the book. The Title page, if indeed there ever was one, is possibly absent. That said the title is above the contets page so perhaps this is all there ever was. The maps appear to have been hand coloured to emphasize the countries' borders, probably at the time of publication by the look of it. In all a decent example of a very scarce and collectable atlas.
