FONTANA, Tommaso / Fontana, Thomas. Venezia Additata al Forestiero che puo percorrerla da se solo con rettificazioni ed aggiunte Alle Guide sonora pubblicate. Venice, Dalla Tipografia. (1845) A lovely little guide book to Venice. large (15.5 X 19.5 Inches). 8 further engravings. Original binding of burgundy spine with titles and decoration, turquoise marbled boards. Text is entirely in Italian. The book is in the form of a series of guided tours of Venice. Map, Title, text and 8 engravings, index, corrections.
The leather spine is clean and tidy, and the gilt is still bright and attractive. Just a touch of rubbing to the edges. A touch of nicking to the base of the rear panel. Likewise, there is rubbing to the boards. Internally generally clean and tidy. Although the map looks beautiful, there is a small closed tear to one corner, and a repair to this corner. Very slight darkening to the engraving. There are a few pencilled marginalia to the text - it looks as if a previous owner has written the dates that they completed each part of the itinerary.
