Edition: First Edition

London / Exeter: Rivingtons / William Roberts, 1855. Octavo, original blue cloth gilt lettered and decorated in blind on front cover, yellow endpapers. pp 88, [2] + frontispiece map and one plate. Some foxing; small holes to lower outer margin of pp 49-52, well away from any printing; else a VG+ clean, bright and tight copy, no owner names, inner hinges not cracked. The author seeks "to prove that the region of the Nerbudda, one of the great and sacred rivers of India, was the ancient dwelling-place of the children of Shem, and the birth-place of Abraham, and that that river was the Pison. I will endeavour to show also that Ophir and Havilah, and Tarshis, were in the same region." Sesostris was an ancient Egyptian pharoah who was said to have lead an army of conquest as far as Georgia (Colchis). A scarce little book. Note: lighter parcel, any default postage rate will be reduced.
