A Series of Adventures in the Course of a Voyage Up the Red-sea, on the Coasts of Arabia and Egypt, and of a Route Through the Desarts of Thebais in the Year 1777.....2 Volumes.., IRWIN, EYLES
12 IRWIN, EYLES A Series of Adventures in the Course of a Voyage Up the Red-sea, on the Coasts of Arabia and Egypt, and of a Route Through the Desarts of Thebais in the Year 1777.....2 Volumes..
London J Dodsley 1787 Third Edition 
(title continued)..with a supplement of a voyage from Venice to Latichea; and of a route through the desarts of Arabia, by Aleppo, Bagdad, and the Tygris, to Bursrah in the years 1780 and 1781 in letters to a Lady... "Eyels Irwin, an East India Company official who travelled up the Red Sea coast of Arabia in the 1770s..His travel narrative of 1780 was a long recitation of Bedouin treachery.." (Tidrick). This octavo edition in two volumes omitted the four sepia aquatints which appeared in the first 4to edition, and was illustrated by 4 engravings on copper. However this set has had the earlier aquatints inserted in volume I as well as an extra one in volume II in addition to the engravings and maps as called for. The folding maps are Vol I 'A View of the Town of Yambo on the Coast of Arabia; A Map or the Red Sea (reinforced verso), Vol II The Nile Valley; Assyria, Mesopotamia, Babylonia (torn and repaired); The Gulf of Catarro on the Coast of Dalmatia - (5 maps in all). Bound in full contemporary tree calf, gilt border and dentelles; recent professional restoration and relaying of back strips with blind-tooled and gilt decoration, raised bands and twin labels in red and black. NB the back cover of volume I, although of similar age has been taken from another volume and has a small gilt armorial motif appearing upside down - the gilt border and dentelles are of a different design but the whole restoration of the set has been very successful. Three armorial book plates have been relaid on new marbled endpapers. One of these book plates belonged to the author - Irwin of Brooke with a note to that effect in a contemporary hand). A note in the same hand appears under the frontis engraved portrait of Irwin and reads 'Bartolozzi fecit.' This is an extra plate inserted after publication. Given the additional insertions, inscriptions and bookplate, it is possible that this set was owned by the author, or someone closely connected. pp 387; 401. Digital images available on request.
