170 pages (complete). From the library of Edna and Frank Bradlow (the esteemed Africana specialists). A VERY RARE, most pleasing copy of this most important seventh edition of 1806. The extraordinary fame of Paul & Virginia of the island of Mauritius was already inspiring artists, authors and hearts. Pocket book sized. Full leather. The boards have wear about the edges, corners and seams from use, shelving and age, The spine has five gilt double bands. It is a little worn and scuffed, especially to head and foot, but is otherwise genial, efficient. The contents are most agreeable, especially if one takes the age of the book into account. Despite some very mild - and expected - tanning about the edges, the pages are clean, clear, healthy, thick, fresh-faced, most confident and companionable. fk.
