About this Item

A well illustrated two volume set, no date - c 1870. This is the Subscribers' edition, specially prepared for William Pattison. Bound uniformly in original red cloth boards with a black and gilt embossed picture of a cheetah and her two cubs to the front boards and lettering to the spine with a small vignette of a deer and her foal. The books are profusely illustrated throughout with numeorus wood engravings and 15 full page illustration plates to Volume I and 25 full page plates to Volume II, all called for and all with tissue guards and each volume with a frontispiece plate. All edges gilt. Volume I has some bumps to all four corners and a few light bumps to the boards edges. There are several short splits of 0.5 cm to the cloth at the head and tail of the spine. There is some damp staining to the front edge of the rear board and mottling to the front board. Volume II has a a few light bumps to the board edges and there is a small gash, as if from a tooth mark to the front edge of the front board and several short splits to the cloth at the head and tail of the spine with some associated rubbing. There are also several light streaks to the rear board. Both volumes have light soiling to the spines. There is some foxing, also to both volumes, to the front and rear end papers and a little scattered light foxing to several tissue guards and to the periphery of a few illustration plates, not affecting the illustrations in anyway. A few tissue guards are a little creased. The books are internally clean and tight. A very good set. Shipping from the UK. Bookseller Inventory # 224248

Store Description

Trumpington Fine Books Limited has been in business for a number of years. We specialize in all books of distinction whether they be modern collectable first editions, monographs or books of reference, fine bindings or antiquarian. Or just simple affordable books, which we believe are of merit. We focus on describing our books thoroughly and aim to make each customer satisfied with their purchase. 'What it says on the tin' what should be in the tin. We also take great care in the packaging of our books - we virtually never have a complaint about books being damaged in transit and we aim to uphold this - despite the fact that it is considerably more expensive on time and materials (and thus money) to pack books well. We try and make our books as affordable as possible and we recognize that times are hard. We have many repeat customers and we are delighted to have them as they only confirm the above. On the rare occasion that things do go wrong, we will try very hard to rectify any problems. We are able to bulk purchase through Royal Mail and aim to make no money out of postage - in point of fact, after taking into account the cost of packaging materials, we take a loss on postage - all our discounts are passed on to the customer. In our business we will endeavour to always uphold the customer. So in short, buy with confidence! Testimonial from Jose in Spain who recently bought some books from us : THE BOOKS HAVE ARRIVED IN PERFECT ORDER AND WITH THE EXPECTED QUALITY. YOU PACK FOR WAR! THANK YOU. LOOK FORWARD TO DEALING WITH YOU AGAIN SOON. BEST WISHES JOSE and we look forward to his next point of contact with us.
