Lewis Engelbach
Naples and the Campagna Felice, in a series of letters addressed to a friend in England in 1802
First edition, 1815
Pub. R. Ackermann (London)
Octavo, 10 1/4" x 6 7/8"

400 pages, featuring 16 hand-colored engravings by Thomas Rowlandson, as well as two maps (one fold-out map of the Gulf of Naples, one map of the Island of Capri). Covered in the original brown cloth with gilt spine, found in protective clear plastic with a vintage custom cloth case.


The cover is generally worn but good, and the binding remains very good. The text block is very good as well, with only occasional minor issues (such as folds or smudges).
