England Delineated in Two Volumes.
Published 1804, London for Lackingham, Allen & Co.
Two volumes bound in one, complete. 148, 148 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout with 147 engraved plates, including numerous fine panoramic city views.
A beautiful book, much nicer than typical.
Period 1/4 leather binding, slightly raised & gilt bands, gilt compartment decorations, gilt title lettering on contrasting red leather label, marbled covers.
Book binding is physically old and shows some light signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, leather rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light scattered age spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
Book Measures c. 9 1/2" H x 5 3/4" W.
