Leather books shelf decoration 1864-71 lot x 10 poetry bindings gilt spinesBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
Uniform leather bindings of the era, gilt stamped compartments, marbled covers, edges and endpapers. Gilt spine titles lacking, some rubbing and scuffing, couple heads are chipped, but all remain tight and sound, clean condition overall.
All stand alone with their contents complete unto themselves, but most are part of larger subsets, meaning most of the books are "odd" volumes, hence being offered primarily as attractive (inexpensive) shelf decoration.
Books measure: 6 5/8" H X 4 1/2" W.
Set along the shelf measures: 10 3/4".
