Public Characters of 1805-1806.
Published 1806, London for Richard Phillips.
629 pages plus index. Text in English. Five engraved portrait plates plus one folding battle plan.
In a very attractive early 19th century antiquarian full tree leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & title lettering.
Book is approx. 215 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. A handsome book in much brighter nicer condition than typical for bindings of this era.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, 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 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.
