Item Description: Maggs Bros Ltd, London, first edition, 1989., 1989. Edition of 300 copies. Original boards, folio, 35 cm, xxi, 446 pp, xvi pages of plates (some colour). 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. Covers a trifle sunned, otherwise Near Fine. 0901953067. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-05342

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: Estes and Lauriat / University Press, Cambridge, Boston, 1890. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Limited Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Edition de Grand Luxe, Limited to 250 numbered copies, of which this set is number 228. Printed on Imperial Japanese Vellum, printed at the University Press, John Wilson and Son, Cambridge. This set traces Greek history beginning with "Legendary History", ca. 2000 B.C., discussing the various Greek tribes and states, gods, heroes, and statesmen; through the Roman invasions and the Macedonian Wars. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S): Jean Victor Duruy (1811-1894), French historian and statesman, devoted his life to education, serving as Chair in the College of Henri IV at Paris for over 25 years and introducing many reforms including secondary education for girls by lay teachers and the introduction of modern history and languages to the curriculum. He wrote many historical works, and is perhaps best known for his histories on the Greeks and Romans. The Introduction was written by John Pentland Mahaffy (1839-1919), Irish classicist and scholar, who held the Chair in Ancient History at Trinity College, Dublin from 1871, becoming Provost in 1914; while at Trinity he was acquainted with Oscar Wilde and seemed to share his wit; Wilde described Mahaffy as his "first and greatest teacher" (author info from Wikipedia). ***PROVENANCE: This set has the initials of the prior owner in gilt, surrounded by a gilt laurel wreath, on the front board: the initials are "WBH"; per a printed statement after the limitation statement, "This copy has been printed and specially bound for Wm. B. Hayden". The set was subsequently owned by William H. Berg, the president of Standard Oil of California from 1937-1940 (now Chevron Corp.); we acquired the set from his family. ***DESCRIPTION: Eight volumes, half crimson leather over marbled boards, "WBH" surrounded by laurel wreath in gilt on front board, gilt lettering and decorations to spine direct, five raised bands also with gilt decoration, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers in light blue and gold on ivory paper, printed on Imperial Japanese Vellum, tissue-guarded frontispieces in each volume, title pages in red and black, which state "Containing over Two Thousand Engravings, including numerous Maps, Plans, and Colored Plates"; pagination: Vol. I Section I, xviii, 281; Vol. I Section II, 282-582; Vol. II Section I, xviii, 302; Vol. II Section II, 303-664; Vol. III Section I, xviii, 347; Vol. III Section II, 348-662; and Vol. IV Section I, xx, 313; Vol. IV Section II, 314-598 which includes a General Index at the rear. ***CONDITION: Overall very good+, as each volume has a strong, square text block, solid hinges, straight corners with a minimum of rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; the condition issues include one volume with a split to the front board (still attached, but will need some restoration work), a few volumes having corners a bit more severely rubbed, some minor wear to the outer joints, and several of the volumes having some small loss to the head of the spines. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and heavy set; the Abe standard postage you see will not cover our costs, therefore additional postage will apply. We are happy to ship both domestic and international orders at cost, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
