Duff dated Paris August 20th, 1789 on the front flyleaf and the 1858 bookplate of Admiral Duff on the front pastedown.

Comments: Only edition of this Italian grammar, reader and pronunciation guide by the professor of Italian and English in Paris. It is aimed at assisting those wishing to develop basic reading skills and conversational competence rather than translating or compositional expertise. This emphasis on the practical is carried forth in the exercises following each lesson, as well as in the choice of examples used to illustrate various rules and their exceptions. Very scarce - OCLC lists only 3 copies.

I don't think I have ever before felt the urge to write to a business, but I wanted to let you know that I have been extremely pleased with everything I have received. I started acquiring older titles when I decided to read some of the early writings in my field. While I noticed that some books were available digitally, I quickly discovered that nothing compares to having the actual books in my hands. For me, they inspire a feeling of deep respect for the work of these past authors that just cannot arise similarly from an eReader or a PDF. All of the books I ordered have been beautiful, packed with obvious care, and shipped in lightning speed. I'm hooked! The next time I head downstate I will look forward to visiting your store in person! Best Regards - Lisa.
