1964—1966. A super three volume set of Edward Lear's journals as he travelled through Italy, the Balkans and the Mediterranean in the 1840s and 1860s. Each volume is illustrated with finely reproduced lithographs and drawings by Lear. The books are:
Volume 1—Southern Italy: Journals of a Landscape Painter in Southern Calabria and the Kingdom of Naples. With twenty lithographs.
Volume 2—Greece: Journals of a Landscape Painter in Greece and Albania. With twenty lithographs.
Volume 3—Journal of a Landscape Painter in Corsica, with twenty drawings by Lear.
Each book is in very good condition, with a hint of tanning to the spine and a very small amount of bumping to the top edge. The pages are clean and the binding strong. Wrappers not price-clipped. The slipcase is quite heavily scuffed and bumped but has done a fine job in keeping the books in good condition.
