Published c. 1840's, London by Darton & Harvey.
269 pages. Text in English. Engraved frontis.
Attractive antiquarian 1/4 leather binding, smooth spine, gilt title lettering, marbled covers
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, rear joint split, cover re-attached in past (still firmly held), please see photos, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly 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 scarce juvenile 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.
Book Measures c. 6" H x 3 3/4" W.
