Histoire et description du Japon / d'epres le P, de Charlevoix

£95.00

Product description

Pierre Francois Xavier de Charlevoix was a Jesuit Priest much of whose life was spent in North America. He was a historian, traveller and writer who became the editor of a journal which, in 1735, proposed the publication of a series of histories of extra-European countries. This volume, first produced in 1744, was part of this endeavour. The present edition is part of a comprehensive series "Biblioteque de la Jeunesse Chretienne", presumably abridged and edited by the publisher. A Mame hardback with no DJ. Richly decorated full leather binding with tipped in colour illustration on the front of sailing vessels and dockside travellers in a harbour. Binding good with only minimal signs of wear to corner and minimal foxing. Text exclusively in French. Frontispiece and two other lithographs with small protective transparencies. Small vignette of priest with crucifix on title page.
A book designed for children but in very good condition and of considerable interest.
