London: Lupton Relfe, 1822. First edition. vii,(1), 320pp, with a portrait frontis (no other illustrations called for). Lacks half-title. Text clean, paper slightly toned; but foxing, soiling and staining to frontis, and offsetting and soiling to title page. 19thC marbling to all edges. In new green Victorian cloth, spine ruled in gilt and with a black lettering piece. [From the Preface: 'The editor ... has taken as his groundwork for the present Memoir, M. Beauchamp's French work, Vie d'Ali Pacha, which he has considerably enlarged by the occasional introduction of interesting passages from the works of some of those who have visited the late Tyrant of Epirus'.] Very nice copy. Very Good.
