Product description

Julius was an English writer on theological and social subjects. He was born in 1796 and died in 1855. He was educated at Charterhouse and Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1840 he was appointed Archdeacon of Lewes.
In concert with his brother, Augustus, he published this book which became a very well-known work.
The book has a very neatly inscribed dedication in pen,(see photograph),plus a neatly penned name on the inside cover. The cover is still attached to the body of the book but it has started to come adrift. However, the pages are bound together in a firm block and they are in very good clean condition with no foxing. Although showing obvious signs of wear, the book has been beautifully bound,( by J. Kelly, 15 Gower Place), and has marbled end papers, part-marbled covers as well as marbling to all leaf edges.
