Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Published 1870, Leipzig by Bernhard Tauchnitz.
358 pages. Text in English.
Rare 19th century German imprint of this classic work.
Period 1/4 leather binding, raised bands, gilt title lettering, marbled covers & end papers.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition. Early owners custom armorial book plate to paste down.
Binding gently age worn, leather rubbed but still supple, joints slightly scuffed with some tiny surface flaking, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, 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.
