Product description

This fourth volume in a series of magazine compendiums issued by SPCK in the nineteenth century; each issue contains serials, articles on history, science and geography as well as poetry. Bound in beige cloth, half leather, the cover shows a considerable degree of wear, unsurprising for its age, including a split approx. 4 cm long to the top right of the spine, and a section of the surface covering missing at the top right front corner; the bottom of the spine has a closed tear to the cover on the left hinge, approx. 4.5 cm. Some dust soiling to the top of the text block. The front end paper has a previous owner's name and date 1982, and an older decorative bookplate. There is a slight split after the title page but the volume is tightly bound. The text is clear and bright and there are numerous charming engravings accompanying the articles.
