Shirley, A Tale

£19.99

Product description

This book is part of the "People's Library" series of classic books. The book originally had red cloth-covered boards and spine, although this covering has now had a hard-wearing plastic layer placed over it. The original cloth on the spine has faded due to sunlight while being stored on a bookshelf. It seems likely that the spine had the title of the book (probably plus author and publisher names) but any text cannot be seen now. The front or rear covers have no text at all. Due to the plastic layer the book has no bumping or any shelf wear, except for the fading of the spine cloth. The hinges are in good condition. The free endpapers at both front and rear are gloss brown paper. The pages are reasonably well cut considering the book's age (1908). They are discoloured, especially at the edges. There are also two patches of stain marks at the lower areas of the pages which have penetrated the pages to show at the bottom edges of the pages. These marks are brown in colour from pages 3 to 73 (approximately) and black in colour from pages 409 to 462 (approximately). There are also two areas where the top corners of the pages have been folded a little starting at page 233 and page 285. The title page and the frontispiece have floral decorative sections enclosing the words in black ink. At the top of the spine (on the front hinge) there is a 25 mm crack through the plastic and cloth covered layers.
