Old and New London - A Narrative of Its People, and Its Places

£150.00

Product description

Illustrated with Numerous Engravings.

Twelve Volumes (or divisions) of a specially prepared subscription only edition.

Red cloth covered bevel-edge boards, the front is generously illustrated and decorated in black, white and gold, the rear boards are blind stamped with a circular motif. The spines are also heavily decorated in a similar style to the front boards but are a bit faded. All page ends are gilded which is still bright, although the tops are a little dusty. The pastedowns and ffe are black. There is some shelf-wear along the edges and the glossy texture of the boards is spoilt in places.

In each book, on the verso of the ffe is a stamped address which we assume to be that of the original owner, being a residential road of large, probably Victorian properties in Bournemouth.

The bindings are still in good condition, some volumes appear to have had little use. There is a little foxing on the pre and post text pages but the main text block is mainly unaffected.

Unfortunately some of the engravings have been cut out.

Overall this set of books is in remarkably god condition considering their age.
