An Inquiry Concerning the Author of the Letters of Junius with Reference to the Memoirs by Celebrated Literary and Political Character.
Published 1814, London by T. Belsey.
114 pages. Text in English.
Antiquarian 1/2 leather binding, smooth spine, marbled covers. With an interesting early Lending library/ book & curiosity shop book plate.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Front cover detached, spine leather dried and mostly gone, rear joint broken. Poor exterior physical condition. Scarce in any condition.
Binding age worn but still appealing, spine leather lacking, joint leather scuffed, dried & worn, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently 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 scarce/ rare 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.
