£75.00

Product description

... And Complete Practical Guide in Health and Disease for Families, Emigrants, And Colonists. By The Editor Of The "Dictionary Of Useful Knowledge".

Numerous engravings in text (spine states 140 engravings).
Sold As found, needing rebinding. Originally in green boards with gold vignette on front cover and red leather spine with titles and design, but now in poor condition with both boards detached and spine worn and with loss; the text is still sound, though end papers are fragile.
