Kaloolah, or, Journeyings to the Djebel Kumri: An Autobiography of Jonathan Romer (The "Illustrated Edition")
by Jonathan Romer
London: George Routledge & Co, 1851. 1/2 leather. Very Good. Watts Phillips. The 1851 "illustrated edition", which includes 3 wonderful full-page, hand-colored illustrations By Watts Phillips complementing the text. Solid and VG in its half-leather over marbled boards, with light scuffing and wear along the panels and at the spine. Internally, very clean, with a bit of scuffing at the endpapers and pastedowns, and a small, neat former owner inscription at the first blank endpaper; otherwise, no markings to speak of. 16mo, 296 pgs. Charming tipped-in 1937 note from a former owner of this copy, who recalled having "Kaloolah" read to him as a young boy and who, may years later, was delighted to find it in when in London.
