Voyage du Jeune Anacharsis en Grece, by Barthelemy.
Published 1868, Paris by L. Hachette Et Cie.
3 volumes, each c. 450 pages. Text in French. Complete as issued in these three volumes.
Attractive antiquarian 1/4 leather binding, raised bands, gilt title lettering & compartment decorations, marbled covers. A separately issued atlas exists for some editions, unclear / unknown if this set had one (unlikely).
Set is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, spine heads with tiny chipping, leather and joints scuffed and rubbed but still supple, set remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A set which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Set displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this set as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
