Description

    William Martin Leake. Travels in the Morea. With a Map and Plans [with] Peloponnesiaca: A Supplement to Travels in the Morea. London: John Murray, 1830 and 1846. From the library of Glenn Ford.

    First edition. Four octavo volumes (the fourth volume being a supplement). xvii, 513 pages; viii, 534 pages; vii, 476 pages; ix, 432 pages. With numerous folding plates and maps.

    The three-volume set of Travels in the Morea in contemporary leather bindings with a single rule stamped in gilt on the boards and titles and decoration stamped in gilt on the spine in six compartments between barely raised bands. The boards show significant shelf wear and the joints are cracked (front board almost detached) and tender on volume one and altogether loose on volume three. The contents, however, are remarkably sound. The supplement is quarter bound with marbled boards and titles and decoration stamped in gilt on the spine in shallow compartments between raised bands. The front joint is slightly tender, else the boards display moderate shelf wear. The contents are sound. A rare set, the more so with the supplemental volume, worthy of professional restoration. Very good condition. From the library of American film actor Glenn Ford, with his armorial bookplate.
