Four volume translation by Peter Motteux, the eighth edition of 1749 in speckled calf, gilt panel to boards and lines to spine with volume numbers in gilt and title in blind. The bindings are scuffed and rubbed to edges but sound and intact, minor penmanship to blank endpapers. The texts are illustrated throughout - 'Adorn'd with New Sculptures.' This edition revised and annotated by 'Mr Ozell'. Popular in its day Motteux' translation was later condemned for its frivolous tone.
