Rasselas

£10.00

Product description

1829. miniature copy of Dr Johnson's Rasselas. Approx 11cm by 5cm in burgundy leather binding with gilt lines and lettering. The cover has surface marks as would be expected with a book of this age and on the rear an area that has been scraped has been repaired. The inside edge of the cover beneath the endpapers is decorated in a delicate gilt pattern. There are 2 neat inscriptions on the free endpapers; one in pencil and one in beautiful copper plate ink dated 1830. The frontis shows a picture of Dr Johnson and the first title page is also decorated. The first 3 pages have a small area of tanning at the top edge. The text block edge is gilt. The silk page mark is still present but very frail. A delightful book in wonderful condition for its age.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
