About this Item

Undated copy in original blue decorative cloth binding by the author of 'Uncle Ned's Stories of the Tropics' - also irritatingly unidentified. Probably 1880's with blue and black stamped decoration and gilt titles to the front board and spine. With numerous black and white illustrations. The book attempts to illuminate nature for young readers by a series of stories eg the story of a hermit-crab. The binding is bright and clean with a little scuffing to the top of the spine joint with the front board and some pulling to the top and bottom of the spine. Corners with some wear and a little bumping. There is an ink inscription - 'Lizzie Gartside a present from her father' to the fep. The endpapers are a little marked and are splitting at the joints with the book block - the front more than the rear - and the binding is a little shaken but currently sound. Contents clean and bright with just the occasional light spot. Bookseller Inventory # 031621

Store Description

We are a small online bookselling business specialising in rare and unusual books, generally published before 1900, with a focus on natural history, history, science and mathematics, travel and exploration, illustrated and some literature. We have recently moved to the beautiful Orkney Islands and are adding a specialist Orkney/Shetland section to our listings. We intend to open a bookstore here in the next year. We take images of all of our books to supplement the online descriptions, and are always happy to provide more on request. When you order from us, we ensure that books are properly packed to protect their condition and we always use recorded or 'signed for' postal services for additional security. Because we are based on an island which depends on ferries and flights for shipping, we can not guarantee 'next day' delivery. We will simply get your purchase to you as quickly and safely as we can.

Shipping Terms:

Shipping in the UK will be by lowest cost 'signed for' method. Shipping to the rest of the world will be by signed for and/or tracked airmail or courier. We do not use Surface Mail because our experience is that too many parcels go missing.
We aim to ship all orders within 2 working days.
Our shipping costs are based on an assesment of actual costs over preceding months. If your book is very heavy eg a 10 volume set, we may contact you about extra shipping. This is by exception, for example we have not had to do this at all in the last 2 years. If your book is small and light we are happy for you to enquire about shipping 'at cost'.
All overseas shipments are FOB, the buyer is responsible for managing and paying import duties.

We pack our books in tissue paper, layers of bubble wrap, and craft paper with parcel tape to prevent water ingress. We use boxes generally for sets of books or large items.
