DESCRIPTION

On offer here is the extremely rare 1896 Original Publisher's Hardback - the first year of the hardbacks.

The front board is in excellent, bright condition with no marks and bright gilt.

The rear board has no issues at all - clean and bright.  

The gilt title to the spine remains bright.  There is just the slightest amount of wear to the right and left hand margins of the spine but nothing serious.

Internally everything is in excellent condition and the only issue to report really is that the front hinge appears to have been restored and is now strong.

The front and rear yellow end papers are in excellent, bright condition.

The photoplate of W. G. Grace is in excellent condition.  The contents are all original, clean, unmarked and without foxing.  

The book comes with a purpose made brown presentation box which is in fine condition.

A really nice example.

 

If intending to buy from outside the UK mainland please contact us before buying to ascertain methods and prices of postage.
