Chronica da Companhia de Jesu do Estado do Brasil.
Published 1865, Brazil by A.J. Fernandes Lopes.
339 pages. Text in Portuguese. Two volumes bound together as one.
Attractive antiquarian 1/2 leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & title lettering, deckled edges.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding age worn but still appealing, leather and joints scuffed, dried, chipped and abraded but still supple, covers still well attached, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is uniformly 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 rare South American 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 they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.
