A New Version of the Psalms of David. London, 1775 by Mary Harrison.
Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, slightly raised bands, gilt compartment decorations, gilt cover designs, all edges and turn ins gilt.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object. A very nice 18th century binding.
The 1775 Psalms Book is defective internally, lacking several leaves. Book is unpaginated so exceedingly laborious using "catch words" to collate, offered as seen and described. Slightly defective, could be lacking other leaves although there is no evidence of it, in a beautiful period binding, still a nice book as it survives.
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 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.
