Discourses, by William Ellery Channing.
Published 1832, Boston by Charles Bowen.
279 pages. Text in English.
Attractive antiquarian full grained morocco leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & compartment decorations, gilt title lettering, gilt ruled covers, marbled edges and end papers.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Splendid bright binding of this era, much nicer than typical.
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 age toned as typical, moderate to heavy foxing throughout, internally book remains otherwise 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.
