Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the pair. Nicer than typical for the type of binding and era.

1900-1901, London, MacMillan and Co., Ltd. pp. 450, 395.
Bound by Zaehnsdorf, with their stamp.
Beautiful early 20th century 1/2 leather bindings. Grained morocco, raised gilt bands, compartments nicely gilt decorated with ornaments and lettering, top edge gilt, marbled covers and end papers, portrait frontis in each. Arts & Crafts aesthetic to spines.
Lovely antiquarian books, both remain overall clean, tight and sound. Leather remains supple, firmly bound, hinges tight, fresh internally. Beautiful pair of books.
