3 Galibert, Leone; translated into Italian by Mariano D'Ayala L'Algeria Antica e Moderna Dai Primi Ordini de Cartaginesi Insino alla Presa Della Smala D'Abd-El-Kader
Napoli (Naples) Tipografia Floriana 1846 1st Edition thus Hardcover Good Plus 
Book. 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall. 787 pp. + 11 color plates of soldiers and fighters and 4 steel engravings of panoramas or views. Comprehensive history of Algeria, from Ancient Carthage to the then present of French control. Binding and text blocks are tight. Some occasional foxing, and on some pages it is considerable, as inevitable given the paper stock used. The costume color plates, though, are attractive and mostly clean, albeit their paper is toned a bit. Red calf spine and boards have a fair amount of rubbing, scuffing and wear, with some rawness on spine extremities. Overall better than a good copy.
