The Poetical Works of William Cowper

£29.99

Product description

AKA "Cowper's Poetical Works".

Small format, rather thick, pocket size book with heavy bevelled boards covered in brown cloth, heavily decorated in gilt; similar spine. The spine is worn at the top to expose the padding. Plain dark brown paste-down and end-papers, with an embossed booksellers mark on the top of the ffe. All the page ends are gilt, still quite bright overall, although the top is dusty. The front board is a bit loose but still well attached. The book suffers from quite a lot of foxing in places, very variable. The main text binding is in remarkably good condition, appearance suggest the book has not been opened much except in a few places.
