About This Item

LONDON : J Johnson, 1799 Vol III only of the third english edition. The work was published initially in France in 1797 and then in 2 separate english translations in 1798. This is marked 'Second Edition' being the second edition of Johnson's translation. With 7 folding plates, 2 folding charts, 2 pages of plans and a single page plate (all b/w). The full leather binding is worn: the front board is detached; the joint with the back board is weak; and the edges are generally scuffed and rubbed - but it could be rescued with a leather case repair. The contents are generally in very good condition - there is the occasional browning and spotting and page 97 has a small hole affecting part of 2 lines of text - but apart from that it is clean and tight.
