Abbe Constantine by Halevy 1890's Leather book Illustrated LemaireBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(Small pocket-sized 19th century leather bound book- small size and format).
Wonderful period leather binding, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. Pleasing age patina to the item, impossible to recreate and very different from any modern book.
Short video captures condition and appearance much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the book.
Nicer than typical for the type of binding and era.
