Publisher: Tours, Ad Mame et Cie
A mid 19th century edition of Emmanuel, or Portuguese domination in the East Indies in the 16th century.
This edition is bound in a richly decorated and ornate cartonnage binding of the period, adorned with gilt against blue, with a lithograph central panel.
One finely decorated cartonnage volume in 12mo, 236 pages
On note of condition this volume is in good shape, with minor wear and rubbing to the binding, more heavily to the corners. There is minor foxing and staining throughout, with exposed gutters at the introduction. The entire text block itself is cleanly detachable from the binding with a bit of effort but can be permanently bound with a good binding glue.
