About this Item

Small 4to. Full calf with raised bands, gilt spine lettering. x, 1019pp. Marbled endpapers and marbled page edges. Very good. Some leather loss at lower left of rear board, else only mild scuffing and bit of rubbing evident. Remarkably tight and nice for its size, this later printing of the hefty 1872 reference work is seldom found in full leather and seldom found so tight and white and bright -- internally this is a "Near fine" copy. An exceptionally nice copy of this classic. Bookseller Inventory # 33674
