Product description

"Hawthorns Works, Illustrated Library Edition; Two Volumes in One"

Substantial green cloth covered boards with blind stamped decorative border, the authors name appears in the middle in still bright gilt text. The rear board is similar except the authors name in replaced by a leaf based emblem. Heavy wear around the edges of the spine and the bottom corners in particular are worn and bumped.

The front board hinge is coming loose between the sfe and the frontispiece although it is still intact. There are several other places where the binding is exposed.

The endpapers are plain dark brown. The second free endpaper has the stamp of a previous owner and there is a different inscription on the title page in dark ink which has bled through to the tissue protecting the frontispiece. There is some foxing on the pre and post pages but the main text block in mainly unaffected.

Good reading copy.
