Shepp's Giant Library: Eight Great Books in A Single Volume.
Published 1897, Philadelphia by the Globe Bible Publishing Co.
526 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout. 

A stunning survival, book survives in about as close to as issued condition as a 19th century book can. Clean, fresh, bright, just minimal minor edge nicks or spot scuffs to covers. Weight of the text block has resulted in a slightly loosened text block.

Attractive antiquarian full decorative leather binding, smooth spine, gilt tile lettering, elaborate floral embossed compartment & cover decorations, all edges gilt.

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, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. 

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.
