The Practical Woodworker, Complete Four Volume Set

£50.00

Product description

Undated, circa 1950's. Published by the Waverley Book Company, LTD. All four volumes of The Practical Woodworker, edited by Bernard E. Jones. Profusely illustrated.

Four good condition hardbacks on green cloth boards with gilt titles and decorations to the spines. The boards are blind-stamped in imitation of a half-binding. All four books display signs of slight wear, rubbing and bumping, and all display signs of water damage to the covers and dust-jackets to varying degrees, from large and obvious on volumes one and three, less on volume two, and volume four having almost none. The first volume only bears a former owner's inscription to the front paste-down. The dust-jackets generally are in fair condition, being edgeworn, chipped and slightly torn. The spines of the jacket bear significant age-related browning. The edges of the block on all four books have been decorated with speckled green pattern. Internally, all four books are clean and clear, barring some very sparse light foxing, and the text and illustrations within are all fully clear and legible.
