Blair's Outlines of the History of Ancient Greece Embracing its Geography, Mythology, and Antiquities on a New and Interesting Plan for the Use of Schools

Hartford: S. G. Goodrich, 1826. First edition. Hardcover. First edition. 12mo. (i)-xii; (9)-212pp. Illustrated throughout with woodcuts as well as a folding, hand-colored map of ancient Greece. Original binding of red leather spine with gilt rules; paper over boards. The leather is crazed, board edges and one corner worn, else very good, with occasional faint foxing and offsetting to the text pages. Neat ownership inscription dated 1826. Extremely scarce in the first edition, perhaps explained by the publisher's note on the reverse of the title: 'A small edition only of this work is printed; after having been submitted to several experienced teachers for their improvement, a new edition will be published to which questions for examination will be added.'. Very good. Item #16094
