Brideshead Revisited - The Sacred & Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder

£600.00

Product description

This edition was issued on first publication by The Book Society in association with Chapman Hall in may 1945. It has the Book Society Ex-Libris book plate pasted on the second front endpaper.

Jacket has some small nicks and tears around the edges, with a little loss at the corners and top and bottom of the spine.

Published in 1945, book is still restricted to the wartime standards for the use of materials, thus the jacket is very thin, as are the boards. However the paper seems to have aged very well.

The spine of the jacket is sunned and discoloured with age.

Price of 10s. 6p. is intact on the front flap.

The book has plain red boards with the title on the spine in still bright gilt text.

Because they are so thin, the top corners of the boards are a little curled.

The hinges and binding are in excellent order, showing little sign of use. We judge the book has been read but certainly not much.

The top page edges are tinted red to match the boards.

No inscriptions or markings.

No foxing.

This item is in remarkably good condition and will suit a collector.

NOTE:
Because of the value this item will be sent by courier at additional cost. If you purchase it, please provide your telephone number so that the courier can contact you to arrange delivery if necessary.
