London: Richard Holmes Laurie, 1868. Hardcover. 8vo, 8.75 x 5.5 inches, publisher's cloth backed boards with printed paper cover label, very good, light edgewear to boards, foxing and spottiness to endpapers, text otherwise clean and very good. Folding frontispiece map of the Mediterranean, xxxv, (30), 599 pp, plus 24 pp. publisher's catalog; the 30 unnumbered pages after the prefatory material are a directory, with descriptions and locations, of all the Mediterranean lighthouses. With a handful of in-text illustrations of coastlines. Extremely uncommon, in fact, OCLC cites this edition but locates no holdings for it, and uses the cover label title as opposed to the title on the title page (the cover label title is "Laurie's Sailing Directory for the Strait of Gibraltar and the Mediterranean Sea; including the Adriatic Sea, the Sea of Marmora, The Euxine or Black Sea, The Archipelago, The Levant, and the Coast of Africa"); previous editions, edited by Findlay, were based on the work of John Purdy, including editions of 1856 and 1862; this is the first edition that does not mention Purdy (d. 1843) at all. Very good. Item #H30129
