Locke, John L’Educatione De’ Figliuoli…Transmission to Italy of an influential rationalist text

Per Savatore, Giondomenico Merescandoli, 1750
Small 8vo. (cm). Portrait frontispiece+ title page + (30) + 384 pages + blank. The pages miss-numbered towards the end of the volume by the printer, but the book is complete. The frontispiece and the title page both with one corner repaired with loss to four lines of text on the title page and part of the border of the portrait. Some foxing and water staining to the pages, but legible throughout. A small piece torn from the margin of the first page of the text, not touching the text. There are a few small pencil marks on the text, and a few words in ink on the title page.
The binding contemporary with the book; brown leather spine with the title in gilt and the letters G. D. at the base of the spine, presumably the initials of the original owner. The boards covered in marbled paper, the paper rubbed away at the edges, but the binding very solid.
