Here we have an 1866 Lillywhite Companion.

I am so delighted that I have been able to find an 1866 Companion in original covers without restoration, it is the first one I have ever sold and I have only ever seen one more come to auction in the last 15 years (and i bought that one for my set, they are in the same condition) I have sold 2 rebound 1866s so about one a decade comes up. This is the 2nd edition and the hardest Companion to obtain and there is no facsimile of this one unlike 65.  The condition is better than good but has some small things to point out as most companions do. 

Nice tall covers that are pretty mark free (owners name to top and light pencil to left middle) , spine paper is good just worn at the ends a tiny bit. There is a line forming down the spine but it is tightly bound. Wear towards the spine of the rear cover. 

Nice and clean inside, pencil to title page and some spotting , a lot better than most companions! 

Could be worth double this, I have no reference as so scarce so priced it as per the one I purchased a few years ago and a touch more than the 1865 that is slightly easier to get hold of with more prices available. Easily 4 figures, try and find another , for sale or sold , they just are impossible to find, rebound or even more so in original covers. 

Please see the large pictures.
