The Ideal Cookery Book

£24.99

Product description

This is the more scarce Blackfriars edition half-bound in leather, there remainder in maroon buckram. The spine has 5 raised bands with decorations and the title in-between in gilt. The boards are plain except for gilt decorated lines marking the boundary between the two covering materials. The front board has some white speckled marks and both boards have a little wear. Generally there is some shelf-wear along all the edges and the corners are slightly bumped. Externally the leather hinge for the rear board has some splits at the top and bottom but internally there is no problem. The endpapers have a maroon marbled pattern which is carried through to the page ends, but in a much paler shade.

There are no inscriptions or markings as far as we can see. The binding has a split between the frontispiece and the main section of the book and a matching one between the last page of the index and the rear board but the binding is not coming apart. The binding of the remainder of the main text block appears sound.
