Landlord's and Tenant's Guide: a compendium of information

£95.00

Product description

This volume, re-issued in paperback form in 2012 as "culturally important", was no doubt an invaluable reference book for anyone managing, selling or living on a large estate in the mid-19th century. We know from contemporary literature how important these estates were, both as sources of finance for their owners, as centres of employment for workers of all types (household or agricultural), and as homes for these workers - and clearly it was crucial for everyone to be aware of the legalities associated with this. The author was an experienced 'Estate Agent' (then involving more than mere selling of houses & property) whose father had followed the same profession, so the information provided can be trusted as being correct and current at the time (1853).

We have no information about the author, Alfred Cox.

Our copy is one of the original volumes, presumed to have been published (privately) in 1853, and is in remarkably good condition for its venerable age. Bound in marbled paper-covered boards with tan leather spine and corners, the title in gilt lettering within a dark brown panel on the spine, with 4 other panels adorned with gilt motif and banded with gilt lines, it shows external signs of wear and use consistent with its age - some wear to the leather at angles and at top & bottom of the spine, a little cracking and very minor loss of the marbled paper on the edges, and a generally 'tired' look - but no frank damage. Inside, the leather corners have bled into the pastedowns, leaving dark shadows at corners and spine angles. The binding is firm, there is no foxing, and all pages are clean and bright. A number of the latter pages remain uncut. As an original of a culturally important text, this would be of interest to any collector or student of Victorian law. We are not aware of any other example in the market at present.
