The Works of Algernon Charles Swinburne Poems.
Published c. 1890-1920's, Philadelphia by David McKay.
661 pages. Text in English. Frontis portrait protected by original tissue guard.
Attractive antiquarian 1/2 leather binding, raised bands, gilt title lettering & compartment decorations, cloth covers, marbled end papers.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding gently age worn with scattered light soiling, but still appealing, leather and joints scuffed and rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is uniformly well age toned as typical, internally book remains 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.
