Macaulay's Essays Critical and Historical Essays: Vol. I

£39.99

Product description

This is volume 1 of a two volume set published by Longman in 1862. It has tan leather covered boards with ruled line in gilt around the front and back edges. The spine is decorated with an embossed and gilt pattern with the shortened title also in gilt text. The inside boards, end-papers and page-edges are decorated with a colourful feather-edge pattern.

All edges are worn and damaged, with small tears at the top edges of the spine and on the lower corner of the front board. Leather is damaged in middle of front board. The book was awarded as a prize in 1962 evidenced by a sticker attached to the inside front cover; no other marking. The binding is good, however the front and rear boards are loosened but still securely attached. Internally there is little sign that the book has been extensively read. Overall this book is assessed as good condition for its age.
