Benjamin Franklin, "Doer of Good." A Biography.
Published 1880, Edinburgh by William P. Nimmo & Co.
322 pages. Text in English. Frontispiece protected by original tissue guard.

Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, spine gilt ruled and decorated, covers double ruled, marbled endpapers. Uncommon/ scarce antiquarian title in 19th century leather.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Old bookplates.

Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed and slightly cracked at ends but still supple and sturdy, small chipping to spine head, some small scuffing to boards, inoffensive semi- circular line imprint into top corner of rear cover, remains overall very attractive as an object.

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

Still attractive on the shelf. Book 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 book 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 they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.

Book Measures c. 7 1/8" H x 4 1/4" W.
