Dedicated to the Society of Antiquaries in London, and including "Remarks on the Origina of Hieroglyphics, and the Mythology of the Ancient Heathens". At this point, of course, the hieroglyphics were unreadable. So in addition to the travel manuscript across the Sinai desert, the author attempts to address the mystery of ancient language and culture. Pages 168. In its original binding of leather spine, and marbled boards. A fine antique patina of wear and rubs on the boards, but the leather and hinges are doing fine for its 250 years. Inside, nice clean paper with no foxing or stains.
