A clean copy of this compendium of articles from October 1858 to September 1859 (12 issues all together, bound as one). The pages have held up well. They are toned but quite sound, and foxing is minimal. The binding has not fared so well. In fact, the boards are detached and the leather spine is absent. In brief, the book needs complete rebinding. However, it would be worth the expense. The book is illustrated with many wonderful small diagrams, and there are two steel engravings of the Comet of Donati, quite eerie, and especially important because it won't be coming back until the 4th millenium. There is also a portrait of John Bartlett at the front. There is a stain on the first page of Vol. VII, but this is not characteristic. The paper is of high quality. Publication data is confusing. The book is described as being published by John Bartlett in Cambridge UK (presumably not the American publisher famed for Bartlett's Quotations) , but the publisher is also listed as Trubner and Co. In London. Perhaps that was the printer? A small plate at the front names J. J. Sadler as the owner of the book, and he has also signed the first page. International shipping can be arranged. The book weighs 3.5 pounds. Bookseller Inventory #
