The Coming of the Nuns - A Tale

£19.99

Product description

Dark green cloth covered boards. The front has the title on black print and features a coloured drawing of a female sitting on a bench, in a gazebo, reading a book.

There is some wear, mainly to the top and bottom of the spine where there is a small piece missing. There are some marks to the plain rear board. The spine is discoloured with age and exposure but has the title in still remarkably bright gilt text along with a diamond pattern matching part of the gazebo featured on the front.

The corners are bumped to varying degrees.

There is a large inscription in purple felt tip on the ffe as well as a smaller one in copperplate which has been crossed out.

Some light occasional foxing throughout, worse on the early and later pages.
