Appleton's Town and Country Library. (includes female authors).
Published 1896, New York by D. Appleton & Co.
8 books, each c. 350-400 pages. Text in English.

Attractive antiquarian 1/2 leather bindings, smooth spines, gilt title lettering & spine decorations, marbled covers.

This set of eight (8) books part of a larger set. Each volume is a complete novel unto itself.

Set is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time but would be perfect antiquarian shelf decoration for a room. 

Bindings age worn but still appealing, small chipping to leather at spine ends, leather and joints scuffed or rubbed but still supple, set remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally set remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A set which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.

Still attractive on the shelf. Set displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this set as it survives. 

We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.

Set Measures c. 7 1/2" H x 5 1/4" W.
