London: Printed for J. Harding by R. and A. Taylor, 1818.
Half Leather. Two volumes bound together. The first volume being the bibliographical and textual history and criticism by the editor, Joseph Haslewood. Second volume is the “fac-simile edition of the first impression of the Itinerary” (p. 142), published concurrently. The most famous of Brathwaite’s works (his family name changed spellings like the weather), Barnabee’s Journal was published under the pseudonym Corymbaeus, and it wasn’t until this edition that the authorship was ascertained. “A sprightly record of English travel, in Latin and English doggerel verse... Southey pronounced the original the best piece of rhymed Latin in modern literature.” (DNB II, 1142). The Seventh Edition of the Itinerarium, the first Haslewood edition, bound together with the publisher’s facsimile of the First Issue; collation and pagination reset. Contemporary binding; endpapers watermarked “A 1825.” Armorial bookplate; blindstamp on front flyleaf. Additional title page, engraved. Seven additional engraved plates. Collates complete; 141, , 204,  pp., final leaf blank. Half leather over marbled paper boards. Some wear to the joints, very slight foxing to the plates, some rubbing to the marbled paper boards. All edges marbled. Silk ribbon marker bound in.
Very Good binding.
