The Life of Bernard Gilpin

£39.99

Product description

This is a 1753 biography of Bernard Gilpin (1517-1583), who was an Oxford theologian and Clergyman. It is written by William Gilpin (1724-1804), an artist and cleric. The book is a leather-bound hardback book with an engraved portrait frontispiece, a vignette on the title page, and raised bands on the spine. Condition: the book's front cover is detached from the rest of the book. The covers and spine show some heavy shelf-wear, corner-bumping, marking and denting. The book's edges have some moderate marking and staining. The paste-down has an ex-libris sticker. There is also a sticker on the rear paste-down. A part of the title page has been cut away (see photo). The interior pages have some mild marking, foxing, and staining. Some of the pages have turned corners. Some of the text is slightly faded, but it all appears to be legible. The binding is fairly strong in general.
