A Walk across Africa: Or, Domestic Scenes from My Nile Journal
Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1864. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A very good copy rebound in green cloth covered boards with gilt lettered title piece to spine. Covers and backstrip very firm and square with no snags or splits. Contents sound and tight with no inscriptions or bookplates, but showing a number of pages with a few place note marks (though not excessive); also, a couple of leaves roughly opened (no text affected), some other leaves unopened, scattered foxing on just a few pages, and some old handling and fingers marks at the prelims, mostly just at the half-title. This copy isn't from a library and so there no such stamps or labels. Size: 230mm x 150mm; pagination: [vii]-xviii, 447, [1]: blank, 450-452: Appendix A, [1]: Appendix B, and fold-out map in back inside pocket (which is showing just a few minor partings along a couple of the folds). Note: also includes the very rarely found 41 page publisher's catalogue at the rear. Also note: there's very a small blind stamp at the title-page stating: "With the publishers compliments". An important but relatively scarce work.
