DESCRIPTION

 

What a pleasure listing another super book like this one (the other was a 1930), as you can see from the photographs.

It is overall in very good condition, with bright gilding on the front and spine, clean and complete pages internally.  The edges of the pages are barely marked but have browned with age moreso on the top. 

The yellow end pages both at the front and back have a couple of tiny marks here but nothing significant.  There is a tiny tear on the front page near the spine at the top and a tiny tear on the back page near the spine.  Both are barely visible and do not detract from the overall beauty of this book (see  pictures).

There is some marking to the front and back boards and the spine and each of the edges of the book has been slightly bumped causing a small amount of wear.  The spine has a line down the middle, I presume this is a split due to the weight of the book but the edition is a good tight copy.  The spine has been bumped at both ends causing some creasing and wearing to the material.  

Both hinges are good, albeit slightly weak.

Happy to provide more pictures, if required.

Postage of £6.99 Special Delivery to the UK due to the value of the book. Overseas buyers welcome postage will be at cost for sending the book and requiring this to be signed for to ensure safe delivery.
