Often attributed to Daniel DeFoe.
Small octavo, [8pp. dedication], 352pp, 16pp ads. Leather binding, gilt title on spine, 5 raised bands, gilt decoration on cover, some cracking to lower spine, but binding is solid. Contains the bookplate of the Carleton family, with inscription by Edward Carleton, dated 1742. (Lowndes II, 614) This copy appears to have been owned by Edward Carleton Holmes, Sr, a solicitor from London, who lived until 1909.
Comments: This is the second edition, with the text matching the first edition from 1728. This book is actually the fifth time the book was printed, but under different titles (1728 (2-times), 1740 (scarce copy), 1741 and 1743). Some believed the book to have been written by Daniel DeFoe, but that that theory was rebutted by different studies in the 1970s. This memoir contains descriptions of “their Cities, Towns & etc” in the following locations: Valencia, Barcelona, Molvidro, Monserat, Madrid, Bilboa, Bayonne, etc.
