The World of Children (4 Vols.)

£24.99

Product description

Dark green buckram covered boards and spine. The front boards are blind embossed with a depiction of children pointing at a globe; the title is in the centre in large gold text. The rear boards are plain. The spines, which are slightly discoloured with exposure, have the book details in gold text separated by horizontal ruled lines, also in gold. Overall the exteriors of the volumes 1-3 are in very good condition with little sign of wear, volume 4 has some sign of damage, possibly exposure to dampness, but it has little effect on the overall quality of the item. Some corners are a little bumped.

Internally the books are in remarkably good condition, the bindings are still very tight in most places, with little sign that they have been extensively used. Volume 3 has one loose colour plate but this is probably a fault in the binding process rather than misuse. There is some foxing in places. There are no inscriptions.
