The Moor - Lord Porchester

1825 - Charles Knight, London - First Edition
Although presented as ‘A Poem’, this finely bound first edition of Lord Porchester’s work should have been titled ‘Travels in Spain, with a history of the Moors, and a Poem’, as it is in fact a detailed account of the history of the Mores of Spain, the Spanish Revolution, a narrative of Lord Porchester’s residence and adventures in the Peninsula, and a poem.

The styled Lord Porchester was Henry John George Herbert, third Earl of Carnarvon (1800-49), writer, traveller, politician and cricketer.
