by

ANTHONY DE COSSON

Well Illustrated Throughout

with Several Fold-Out Maps

1935 FIRST EDITION



BOOK DESCRIPTION...We are pleased to offer antiquarian volume titled Mareotis written by Anthony de Cosson with this being a First Edition published in 1935.  Contains numerous photographs plus several fold-out maps.

This volume was an attempt to gather together the topography and sparse, authentic details of history of the district of Mareotis and put forward various suggestions that would help towards understanding a subject of which little was known at the time.  The author found it surprising that Mareotis, the close neighbour of the great and city city of Alexandria, had no collected work on its history, yet the town of Mareotis, or Marea, was more ancient than Alexandria itself.
