Attractive period full leather binding, covers ruled and stamped in blind with large central embossed oval design. All edges gilt, engraved frontis portrait.
Short video captures condition and appearance much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the book.
Nicer than typical for the type of binding and era.

Book measures: 7 1/4" H X 5" W.
Any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. Pleasing age patina to the item, impossible to recreate and very different from any modern book.
