Volney's account of his travels in Syria and Egypt between 1783 and 1785. This second volume concentrates on Syria (Etat Politique de la Syrie) and carries two plates: a fold out plan of the Temple at Balbek and a fine panorama of the ruins of Palmyra.
Good condition. There is some rubbing and scuffing to the leather and the last page of text is working loose but on the whole, a decent copy.
