Memoir of the Life and Character of the Right Hon. Edmund Burke, with Specimens of His Poetry and Letters, and an Estimate of His Genius and Talents, Compared with Those His Great Contemporaries, by James Prior.
Published 1839, London by H. and E. Sheffield.
596 pages. Text in English. Engraved frontis portrait.

Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, slightly raised & gilt bands, gilt compartment decorations, gilt title lettering on contrasting black leather label, gilt ruled covers. marbled end papers and text block edges.

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

Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints scuffed with some surface splitting (covers still well attached), leather remains supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is age toned as typical, title page leaf with strongest uniform toning (likely due to frontis paper) 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.
