London, 1788. ,407,pp. plus folding map and one folding plate. Antique-style three quarter calf and marbled boards. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Very minor foxing and soiling. Very good. First English edition, after the first French edition of the same year. "In September 1779, after an extended sojourn in Egypt, Savary left Alexandria for Asia Minor and the islands of the Archipelago. He spent about six months on Crete and also visited several islands of the Dodecanese.... His letters on Greece are very interesting and center on actual conditions of the places he visited, the character of the modern inhabitants, rather than the antiquarian approach favoured in Egypt" - Blackmer.
