A set of volumes 1-8 of the c.1830 publication of "Voyage du Jeune Anacharsis en Grèce", (Young Anacharsis's trip to Greece). Lovely old gold embossed leather bindings, a set that will not only be fun to read, but also to display. The Paris publisher being noted inside as "Au Bureau Des Editeurs" (At the publisher's office), "Rue Saint-Jacques, No. 156". "By Abbye Barthelemy. A tour of Greece, charming throughout. In French, it contains wonderful notes and observations of a voyage throughout Greece. Fun to read, and would be a wonderful add-in to any collector's travel book shelves or just a tabletop grouping.
Very good condition, all the spines are intact, the leather shows age, but they're nearly 200 years old, remember. There is some foxing to the pages, as you can see in out photos. We've tried to give a good sampling, given the limitations of photos. Each book is about 300 pages, give or take, and measure 5.5" x 3.5" and 7/8" deep, approximate on depth, slight variation. You are buying all 8 books in this set in one offering.
