About this Item

8vo, 54, [2] pp. (7.5 by 5.5".) With 16 hand-colored plates with illustrations by Thackeray. With bookplate of Henry Van Duzer, the Thackeray scholar and bibliographer who wrote "The Thackeray Library", the standard reference on Thackeray. Housed in a stunning custom full morocco box which functions similar to a type of cigar box in which the top half or lid is pulled away. In this case it reveals an inner lining of leather. Within this box the book is contained in a custom folio. The publisher's boards, with illustrated paper pasted onto the boards, has considerable dust soilage, but it is all present and seldom encountered fully preserved as it is with this copy. The folio that acts as the first outer lining has closed tears along edges and rubbing with losses to the green cloth. One edge (the bottom side) is missing. Still, it still functions as a protective layer and is an attractive feature. The leather box itself has a strip of sunned area on the front board but is otherwise in fine condition. The book itself has a few fox marks but overall is clean and handsome. In sum, this is a singular copy, both because of the entire package and because of its provenance. Full Morocco Box housing book with publisher's pastedown paper over boards. Bookseller Inventory # 001349

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
