Letters on Egypt, Edom and the Holy Land

LINDSAY, Lord Alexander

LINDSAY, Lord Alexander Letters on Egypt, Edom and the Holy Land

Henry Colburn, 1838.

First edition. Two volumes. 8vo. In the rare original publisher's cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt to the spine, covers decorated in blind. A lithographed frontispiece after W. W. Ramsay to each volume, showing a view of the Citadel of Cairo, and Mount Serbal as seen from Wadi Feiran. A near fine set, the hinges sound and the text block clean throughout, save for some minor offsetting from each frontispiece. There is a small splash to the upper and lower cover of the first volume, but apart from this and some trivial fading to the spine, a handsome set uncommon in original cloth and without repair.

The first edition of Lindsay's letters from his journey from Cadiz to Palmyra, through modern day Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria is rare, especially so in the original cloth.

PROVENANCE: Likely belonging to the 2nd Duke of Sutherland, with "Cambusmore" written to the title page of each volume, the house and shooting lodge built there being a recent addition to the Sutherland Estates by the 1830s.
