Book Description World Publishing House, New York, New York, 1875. Hardcover. Condition: Fair. No Jacket. Arranged alphabetically by topic, in 506 pages, with a Preface by the compiler (Watson) & Index. A lovely, if somewhat delicate, old volume! Orig. copyrighted in 1869, this is the 1875 printing, NOT a modern reprint. Beautiful gilt to all external page edges. Burgundy cloth-covered boards with black & gilt decoration & lettering show much rubbing, fraying, tearing at both ends of spine. Slightly cocked. Some signatures slightly loosening from their stitching & stick out farther than others on fore edge. Front hinge is cracked & reglued. Dampstain to frontispiece & tissue overlay; same dampstain inside back covers, but no staining to text block. Pages heavily tanned around top edges, less so elsewhere. NO writing/highlighting/underlining; NOT ex-lib. NO DJ. Please see our photos! Description & photos copyright Gargoyle Books 2016.
