Memoires de Madame de Stael.
Published c. 1840, Paris by Charpentier.
459 pages. Text in French.
Attractive antiquarian 1/4 leather binding, raised bands, gilt compartment decorations, gilt title lettering.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, small chip to spine head, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is well uniformly age toned as typical, old steel engraved portrait tipped in at front, 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 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.
