(Old Books, 18th Century Books, Leather Books, Latin Text).
Mat. Corderii Colloquiorum Scholasticorum Libri IV Diligenter Recognit. Editio Novissima, Correctior & Emendatior.
Published 1720, London by William Hunter.
156 pages. Text in Latin.
Full leather binding, smooth spine. Rare early Education book.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding well and heavily age worn but still appealing, leather rubbed but still supple, front joint cracked, cover held only by binding cords, newer replaced endpapers, pastedowns lacking exposing the underboards of the covers, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block is shaken, resewn with uneven signatures (no doubt due to heavy reading/ consultation), paper is toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
