Just purchased Mawe’s 1823 “true 2nd edition" (Sinkankas) Treatise on Diamonds and Precious Stones.

Mawe, John, ibid. What Sinkankas (4286) calls the “true 2nd edition.” 1823. Entirely reworked. Half black calf over maroon marbled boards; red spine label with gilt titling. Scattered foxing, VG. Contains color plates (hand colored wood engravings) including the Hope Diamond. Includes remarks on “spinelle” and Mexican opal.
