Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the set. Nicer than typical for the type of binding and era.
The Early Days of Christianity, Vol. 1 & 2, by Frederic W. Farrar, D.D., F.R.S.
1882, London, Cassell. complete.
Beautiful 19th century full leather binding set. Tree calf covers outlined in gilt rules, spines richly gilt ornamented with central compartment devices, contrasting morocco title labels, gilt ruled board edges and turn-ins, marbled end papers and text block edges.
Minor scuffing along joints and extremities, much less than typical, couple tiny flaws or defects at joint or spine ends (see video). Lovely antiquarian books.
