Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
Period 1/2 leather binding, spine compartments ornately gilt decorated and lettered, marbled covers and end papers, top edge gilt, deckled edges.
Overall very nice antiquarian condition, binding remains clean, tight, and sound, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. Book was originally issued as part of a complete works set, but the book stands alone and is a complete work unto itself. (We only acquired an assortment of the set and thus offer them individually).
