DODWELL, Edward.

Views in Greece.

London, Rodwell, 1830

dodwell's Views in Greece is a cornerstone of any collection of Greek topography. A large copy, the plates clean and fresh.

Views in Greece was originally published in 1819-21 in two forms; most printed on thick paper with a smaller number in the deluxe issue coloured on card and issued in a portfolio. The portfolio issue was not very successful and was remaindered at a lower price in a half binding in 1823. A second edition was published in 1830 with an extra engraving, The Festival at Athens, not called for in the list of plates tipped in. The leftover copies of the plates from the portfolio edition were acquired by Bohn and republished in 1847 using the 1830 title-page but without the extra plate.
