Parables of Our Lord

£180.00

Product description

This edition of "Parables of Our Lord" dates from 1847. It is bound in engraved Papier-mâché boards with a decorated leather spine. The book's edges are all gilt and the edges of the covers are decorated with a gold design. The front and rear end-papers are painted with a marbled design. All the interior pages have illustrations to accompany the text. Condition: the boards and spine suffer from some moderate wear and tear, including marking and staining. The book's edges show some mild marking and denting. The inside of the book is in far worse condition; most of the interior pages have become completely disbound, and there is some mild to moderate marking, staining, and discolouration throughout. There is a previous owner's inscription in pen on the flyleaf. All the text seems, however, to be legible, and the book could be restored to a better condition.
