[Voyage du jeune Anacharsis en Grèce. Recueil de cartes]
Recueil de cartes géographiques, plans, vues et médailles de l'ancienne Grèce, relatifs au voyage du jeune Anacharsis, précédé d'une analyse critique des cartes.

With the title-leaf excised. Without the privilege leaf present in some editions. The title given above is taken from the half-title. From an untraced, possibly pirated late eighteenth-century edition, the letterpress being a resetting of the equivalent volume of the first edition (5 vols., Paris 1788, q.v.). The plates are poor quality copies of those engraved for the first edition.

With a 'Catalogue de Livres françois qui se trouvent chez J. De Boffe, libraire, Gerrard Street, Soho à Londres' dated 14 February 1799, loosely inserted (q.v.).

Binding Original paper boards with printed spine-label and end papers lined with sheets having running title 'Guerre D'Amérique' across conjugate leaves paginated 92 and 85 inside front cover, and 'Traité Du Dalpêtre' pp. 68 and 77 at end.
