About this Item

Bound in embossed leather boards with decorative gilt lettering on the spine; this original hardcover binding is solid and holding well with the hinges being reinforced by clear tape. The interior is clean with previous owner's name in light pencil on the front fly. The text is clean and unmarked with light scattered foxing. NOT ex-library. A clean, quite usable copy. Illustrated with nearly 1000 woodcut engravings. As the lengthy title suggests this work was as encyclopedic as possible and forms the indispensable guide to the early Victorian home.
