Public Characters of 1805.
Published 1805, London for Richard Phillips.
628 pages. Text in English. Engraved frontis portrait. Publisher's 4 pp. catalog at rear.
Attractive antiquarian full tree leather binding, smooth spines, gilt title lettering on contrasting red & black leather labels.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Remains bright.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, split crease down spine center, remains overall very 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 pleasing early 19th century 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.
