Lorna Doone

£11.99

Product description

This edition of Lorna Doone was published as part of Herbert Strang's Library series by Humphrey Milford and the Oxford University Press. Herbert Strang provided the short two-page introduction to the novel.

The boards and spine are bound in blue cloth, with an embossed pattern on the front and black lettering on the spine. The spine shows the title, author's surname and series in black, while the front pattern has a classical frieze of crenellation and chariots (partly repeated on the spine and back). The blue of the cloth is worn all over, particularly on the front, joints, back, spine and edges. All of the edges are shelf worn, the corners are faded rather than bumped, and head/tail bands are weakened. Both hinges are strong and the binding is tight. There is foxing on the end sheets and the page edges, although the page faces are mostly clean. The title page has a decorated border of a vine, mediaeval readers and an open book, indicating the title, author, publisher and series - all in black & white. It is the only illustration in the book.
