Published weekly, January - June 1881, New York by Munn & Co. Publishers.
c. 428 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout, contains approx. 26 weekly issues.
Not to be confused with the actual weekly issues, these are the much scarcer supplements.
Original antiquarian 1/2 leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands, gilt title lettering, cloth covers.
Book is physically old and shows some clear signs of handling and time.
Binding well age worn, front cover well stained from being exposed in an attic or barn, interior contents all clean and fresh. Covers have protected the contents as intended.
Text block paper is gently uniformly 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 they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.
