RARE: A Tour Through Sicily and Malta In 2 Volumes. P. Brydone – 1774

Minimum Donation €194.00

A Tour Through Sicily and Malta in a Series of Letters to William Beckford Esq from P. Brydone FRS. This work detailing travels through Sicily and Malta is scarce. The letters were written in the 1770s by Scottish traveler Patrick Brydone and Mr. Beckford of Somerly. These books offer charming and evocative accounts of a region that was, at that time, untravelled by outsiders. An accompanying message from Edward Abela to us from Canada reads ‘Well done with the fund raising.’
