A handsome set. Undertaken at Gibbon's urging, "Mitford's history for many years remained popular, and had the merit of supplying a laborious English work on a comparatively neglected subject. It was superior at most points to the Greek history by John Gillies published in 1786 É It may be added that Mitford never visited Greece, never travelling beyond Naples" (DNB). Lowndes, p. 1580.

Item Description: Richard Priestley, London, 1824. Three volumes, octavo, with seven folding engraved maps and plates; a fine set in contemporary dark green half morocco, gilt, with the library label of Kimbolton Castle. A handsome set of Pausanias' Description of Greece, the second-century guide-book to the Peloponnese and northern Greece.Pausanias' fascinating and wide-ranging description of ancient Greek life and culture was conceptualised and organised geographically rather than chronologically, and comprises a series of reminiscences of classical Greek life evoked by his visits to ancient monuments. A proud Greek living in the Roman Empire, he could not help but muse about the golden age of Greece, which in his lifetime was but an idealised memory.Although ignored during his own lifetime, Pausanias' work has proved to be of great importance for our present-day understanding of the period. Archaeologists have made much use of his descriptions to identify the remains of ancient sites. As Sir James Frazer wrote, 'Without [Pausanias] the ruins of Greece would for the most part be a labyrinth without a clue, a riddle without an answer. His book furnishes the clue to the labyrinth, the answer to many riddles. It will be studied so long as ancient Greece shall continue to engage the attention and awaken the interest of mankind'.This is the second edition in English, translated by Thomas Taylor the Platonist. The maps, one of Ancient Greece and one of the world, are after the French cartographer Jean-Baptiste d'Anville; the plates are after painter and architect James Stuart.

Item Description: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, London, 1843. Hard BACK. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. Folio (circa 280 × 380 cm), 96 pp, [4], an illuminated title-page frontispiece with vignettes of Karnak, Naples, Venice, Cairo, Athens, Belem Castle and Constantinople, 40 tinted lithographs hors text + 67 woodcut illustrations in text, half-title, original blue calf binding, title gilt on raised spine (rubbed) edge wear to top of spine, with small loss of cover, binding rubbed, paper slightly browned, small water stain on frontispiece at the bottom of the page, occasional spotting, otherwise copy in very good condition.First Edition. Later editions appeared in 1845 and 1846. Allan spent a year - from April 1841 to June 1842 - travelling in the Mediterranean. The plates are after drawings by the author and illustrate mostly sites in Egypt but also Rhodes, Cos, Asia Minor and Greece. John Harrison Allan was from Britain. He was a member of the Athenian Archaeological Society and the Egyptian Society of Cairo. He made a journey to the Mediterranean from April 1841 to June 1842. This Grand Tour of the East had become quite usual for wealthy European in the 19th century, and was considered almost a necessity, as a means to educate oneself and as a sign of social status. Allan published his memoir in 1843, creating a work, of interest above all for its illustrations, which was republished two times. The plates illustrating this large-format work were based on drawings made by Allan himself. The edition is comprised by forty lithographs and sixty-eight wood engravings. The voyage began in Liverpool. The ship reached Venice by way of Gibraltar and Malta, sailed across the Adriatic and the Aegean sea and reached Istanbul. In continuation, the company sailed along the coast of Asia Minor, stopped over at Syros and set anchor at Alexandria. They explored Egypt down to the cataracts of the Nile in Assouan and returned to Alexandria. After a stopover at Malta, they were in Syros again, from where they travelled to Athens. They toured Attica, the Peloponnese, Delphi, and reached Patras. They then visited the Ionian islands, and sailed to Malta, Sicily, Southern Italy, Rome, Marseilles, Barcelona, Malaga and Lisbon.

From the publisher's advertisement: "The publication of [the] Henry Blackmer catalogue is an important event in Greek and Levantine studies. Never has such an extensive collection been catalogued in such detail. There are over 1800 entries, mainly printed books but including manuscripts, photographs and drawings. Every book is described with a signature collation and plate count: in difficult cases a full plate list is printed. Physical bibliography is followed by an historical account of each book, setting it and the author in context. The non book materials are described in equal detail and particular attention is paid to the interrelation between different items. The late Henry Blackmer was an American banker who settled in Athens and formed this remarkable collection as a tribute to his adopted country. The books range in date from the 15th to the 19th century, and include many books of travel, archaeological and architectural treatises, costume books, political tracts and historical accounts of wars, battles and sieges in all the languages of the Eastern mediterranean."With a bibliography and index.

Blackmer was an American banker who settled in Athens and formed this remarkable collection as a tribute to his adopted country, with books and other material dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries.

Item Description: John Murray,, London:, 1849. Navy Morocco Gilt. Book Condition: Near Fine. Near Fine. Mixed Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "George Grote was one of the most remarkable minds of the early Victorian age. But although he has never been forgotten, other Victorian intellectuals less wise than he, less strong in judgment, more erratic, more colourful and perhaps more imaginative, have enjoyed a fame and a following that he has never quite achieved. This is partly because he sought to be a scholar rather than a sage, partly because his work has not been easily accessible. Routledge’s reissue of an Edwardian abridgment of his 12-volume History of Greece, prefaced with an illuminating new introduction by Paul Cartledge, provides the best chance that there is likely to be of bringing him to a modern readership." London Review of Books.This famous history of Greece is beautifully bound in 1/2 navy morocco over navy boards with five spine compartments and 4 gilt raised bands. There is some very scattered, minor underscoring under less than a dozen lines of text in the table of contents of the first 3 volumes. Otherwise this is a clean and beautiful set.

Item Description: London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1855-6, 1855. 8 volumes, octavo. Near contemporary plum half hard-grained morocco, matching pebble-grained cloth, title gilt direct to spines, narrow bands, gilt rolls, marbled edges and endpapers. Light shelf-wear, boards variably sunned, largely just a narrow strip at the fore-edges, but the rear board of volume VIII heavily sunned, light toning, some offsetting from the frontispiece maps, but overall a very good set. 13 maps and plans, 7 of them folding. The Thirlwall's History was first published 1835–44 as part of Lardner's Cabinet Cyclopaedia. The "work entailed prodigious labour. At Cambridge, where the first volume was written, he used to work all day until half-past three, when he left his rooms for a rapid walk before dinner, at that time served in hall at four; in Yorkshire he is said to have worked sixteen hours a day in his study. By a curious coincidence he and George Grote, his friend and schoolfellow [at Charterhouse], were writing on the same subject at the same time, unknown to each other. On the appearance of Grote's first two volumes in 1846 Thirlwall welcomed them with generous praise Grote in the preface to his work bore testimony to Thirlwall's learning, sagacity, and candour" (ODNB). Solidly, attractively bound, and very well preserved. Bookseller Inventory # 109144
