Publication Date: 1890
Book Condition: Very Good
Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket as Issued
This is a handsome TWO VOLUME SET with both books in VERY GOOD condition; decorated with elaborate gilt decorations and lettering still bright on boards and spine. Books' title pages have no dates, and there are no copyright pages, but we believe this presentation is likely from 1890's. Books are illustrated with 75 illustrations, engraved by John S. and Tudor Horton made from original drawings by JOHN GILBERT. Volume I has a biographical and critical introduction by REV. THOMAS DALE. Books are in VERY GOOD condition especially at over 100 years old. Books have textured full black leather with boards heavily decorated with triple gilt framing and full board gilt decorations. Book's spine tips, corners and edges are bumped and worn, but boards are almost untouched in Very Good++ condition. Spines have four raised cords and have scratches (mostly to cords) and show more wear than boards. All three text block outside edges are bright gilt almost As New just like boards. Books binding and insides are tight, bright and clean. Front endpapers have thin red rubber stamp from Savings and Trust Company otherwise there are NO other previous owner's or library markings. There is only very mild and sporadic foxing. Endpapers have beige background with gold stars and show toning due to age. The backside of the boards (edges showing around endpapers) have very intricate pattern in bright gilt nicely preserved in Near Fine condition.
