Viaggio Attorno Al Mondo fatto negli Anni MDCCXL. I. II. III. IV. Dal Signore Giorgio Anson presentemente Lord Anson, allora Comandante in capite di una Squadra di Navi da Guerra di S.M.B
Livorno: Per Gio. Paolo Fantechi e Compagni. 1756. First. Second Italian edition, the first published in 1755. Translated by Hambly Pope. Quarto. xvi, 428pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait, and title-page vignette. Full vellum. According to data at OCLC, "There are two known states: one state wants map and contains a repaired title page." This copy wants the folding map, and shows no obvious evidence of every having one. Three early Italian ownership signatures on front fly ("Del Dottor Gius. Valacchi 1764 in Livorno"; "Del Dot. Giuseppi Mochi 1768"; "di Leon A. Contefiore di pro 1833 in Livorno"), remnant of paper title label on spine, modest erosion to vellum at corners and spine, evidence of old front hinge repair, a very good copy. Sabin 101189. OCLC locates one copy of this edition; four of the 1755 first Italian edition. .
