London: Joseph Mawman, . First Edition Two quarto (7-3/4" x 10") volumes in contemporary tree calf leather with gilt-lettered red morocco spine labels. Illustrated with 16 engravings and a large folding map. Acerbi was an Italian naturalist and composer. His record of travels in Scandinavia describes the customs of the people and detailed observations on natural history. Much of the second volume concerns Lapland where he visited remote areas described here. The map is detached and has a short closed tear with little effect on the image. Scattered staining and foxing but generally clean. Bindings rubbed but the covers are tight. Very Good (Item ID: 017983)
