Practical Handywork For All (5 Vols.)

£24.99

Product description

The volumes included are:
1. Carpentry and Woodwork
2. Building Services
3. House and its Repair
4. Cabinet Work and Furniture
5. Metalworking

Black textured buckram covered boards with the publishers emblem and ruled border blind embossed on the front. The book details are on the spine in gilt text, still bright. The pastedowns are green, the page ends are the same colour although the top edges are a bit dusty. There is very little shelf wear to the edges and the corners are still quite sharp. These book clearly have not had a lot of use. The bindings are still quite tight, so as not to cause any damage we are unable to open them too far to produce many internal photographs.

We are unable to fully check all five volumes but as far as inspected there are no inscriptions or markings.

Each volume has a fold-out picture at the front which are all still in excellent condtion.

Volume one has a white mark on the lower spine, possibly paint. Volume two has some white marks on the front board which look as if an attempt has been made to clean them off at some point later.

Overall this set of books is in remarkably good condition for its age.

This set of books weighs over 5kg so will be sent by courier at extra cost.
