Peter Brown and Thomas Nelson, Edinburgh. 1834. Hardcover. 928 pages (complete). Please note that during binding the prefixed 'Life of the Rev James Hervey' was haphazardly bound. Whilst it is complete, the pages are out of consequential order. A most pleasing copy that would not look out of place on the grandest of shelves. Half-leather. The title page has an antique signature of a previous owner: "R M B & E Angell / Saville Row". Leathered corners and spine are benign and venerable. They have wear about. The spine has five ridges. Gilt titling on the second panel (bright); the other panels have gilt decoration (amiable). The marbled boards have wear about the edges, they have scuffing and light shelving marks. They are secure and youthfully sound. The contents are in most pleasing condition. There of course some age related marks. In general, and by far, the contents are fresh-faced, clean, clear, healthy, tight, gratifying. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Very Good/No Jacket.
