Notes from Magers and Quinn:
1829, 12mo, 96 pgs. 3rd edition. A look back in time at the "prevailing religions, forms of government and degrees of civilization; and the comparitive size of towns, rivers, and mountains" of many countries, as well as a glimpse into the cultural attitudes toward these places. Attractive, marbled, paper-covered boards with nice, recent red-cloth strip bind. Original black leather label glued in place on spine. Board edges worn, small spots where paper is chipped or missing on edges, especially at corners. Boards rubbed only in a few spots otherwise. Soft papers foxed throughout and on edges. Newly re-sewn. Cloth tape on first free endpaper, not quite straight. Previous owner name on ffep.
