Voyage Autor du Monde, by George Anson.
Published 1750, Paris by Quillau, DeLoremel, & Le Loup.
283 pages. Text in French. Illustrated with 4 engraved plates & maps (of nine, lacks 5 plates). Large early custom armorial book plate to front paste down.

Book is defective, contains only 4 of 9 plates. Still fascinating, interesting work worthy of ownership.

In the original mid-18th century French full leather binding, raised bands, gilt compartment decorations & title lettering, marbled end papers.

Volume 1 of a 2 vol. set. This volume complete unto itself for this portion of the voyage. Three tall ship coastal prospect views and a coastal map still present.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.

Binding gently age worn, leather rubbed but still supple, joints slightly scuffed, remains overall attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently toned, light scattered age spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this mid-18th century travel book survives.

Book Measures c. 6 3/4" H x 4" W.
