The Fairy-Land of Science

£29.99

Product description

Hardback without dust jacket.

Bound in maroon leather binding with marbled edges and endpapers. Very worn and faded in places.

Title on spine, just discernible.

Prize certificate from Battersea Grammar School pasted to fep.;

Hinges are starting to crack but pages remain secure to the binding.

Black and white frontispiece ("glacier carrying down stones")

Back pages, which include the index, show marks at the edges of water-staining.

Foxing and damp-staining at the front but the text is clean and unmarked with age-toning and a few sporadic spots of foxing. There is some rippling to these front pages.

From the author's preface "The ten lectures of which this volume is composed were delivered last spring, in St John's Wood, to a large audience of children and their friends, and at their conclusion I was asked by many of those present to publish them for a children's reading book."

A very attractive little volume - price reflects the condition.
