Ancient Furniture and Other Works of Art : Illustrative of a Collection . Of Parham House, Dorset
Bernard Quaritch, London. 1902, First Edition. Hardcover. Complete. A resolutely sturdy copy of this book about the collection at Parhham House. In 2017 the interior of the house and all of its contents were utterly destroyed by a fire (possibly begun by its then owner). At some stage the book has been subjected to damp storage conditions. Leading from the back, the pages have receding (in both size and intensity) areas of staining (mostly to the top corner areas). The green boards are much worn, scuffed, marked all about. Vellum spine (grubby) that has been repaired at head and foot. The boards are weary but steady and sound. The contents are of laid, watermarked, paper. The paper is untrimmed. The end papers are tanned. The contents, aside from that described above, are amiable. They are thick, bold, very certain, congenial, diligent, clean, clear, at times even smart, always decent and bountiful. Please note that due to the weight of the book, should the book need be posted to the outside of South Africa, extra postal charges may be required. fk.
