The Count of Monte-Cristo (2 Vols. & Slip-case)

£135.00

Product description

The two small volumes (6 x 4 inches) have plain semi-rigid boards covered in maroon faux leather finish. Volume one still has the original clear plastic dust wrapper although it has a few tears, volume 2 has no wrapper. There is very little wear to either volume as they have been protected by the slip case although volume two has a bad creases to the bottom front corner where it has been carelessly inserted into the sleeve. Both volumes have some signs of previous mildew having affected the top part of the boards. The spines have the title and other details and decoration in still bright gilt.

Internally the books are in fine condition with little sign of use except for the first few pages of volume one. The top page ends are maroon to match the boards. The hinges and binding are in good order. No inscriptions.

The slip case has a similar finish to the book boards but not of the same quality. There are signs of heavy wear, particularly along the exposed edges, with the card exposed at some corners. The words "British Made" are blind stamped on the bottom of the rear section.
