Untitled.
Issued c. 1900-1920's, United Kingdom (?).

Embossed floral paper over boards (actual wooden) box created to look like a book on a shelf. Each side swings open, metal clasp still functions as intended to keep the front sides closed.

Unique item.

Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.

Gently age worn, some scuffing to surface, original leather labels now most abraded and cuffed off, overall light or inoffensive signs of handling and time but nothing severe or unsightly, item remains overall attractive as an object.

Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detail showing how this book survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books, maps and printed ephemera of all types and genres. Flaws seen and/ or described have been taken into account.
