Italy A Poem
for T. Cadell, Jennings and Chaplin and E. Moxon, London 1830 - This is a stunning book with minimal flaws. There some foxing on the title page and preface, some rare foxing internally and some very light soil on the slip case. Otherwise this exquisite book is clean, tight, square with sharp corners and unmarked in an equally fine cloth covered, felt lined slip case. The end papers are covered in light orange silk. The gilt decorated, brown leather of the binding continues over the boards to frame the cloth covered paste downs. The brown leather is inlaid with marvelous gilt designs with small flowers. The motif continues on the spine where there are five raised bands. The 284, bright, clear pages (gilt edged at the top) are extensively illustrated in black and white and as the author says in the preface "With respect to the embellishments of this volume they require no praise of his. The two artists, who have contributed so much to give it value, would have done honor to any age or country." We have called it a first edition although the author in preface notes "Much of it was published as it was written on the spot. He has since revised it throughout, and added many stories from the old Chroniclers and many notes Illustrative of the manners, customs and superstitions. This referencing the 48 pages of notes at the rear. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
