Belisarius and Numa Pompilius

£18.99

Product description

Belisarius by Jean-François Marmontel and Numa Pompilius by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian, bound together, and paginated continuously. The stories of Belisarius, Roman general of the 6th century AD, and Numa Pompilius, the second king of Rome who succeeded Romulus in 715 B.C. There is no date of publication, but there is a presentation bookplate of Leith High School on the front pastedown that is dated August 10, 1829. Full leather binding with gilt motto and emblem (presumably of Leith High School) on the front and rear boards. The leather is rubbed and worn. The leather spine, which bears very faded gilt titling and decoration, is dry and cracked, and there is loss at the head and tail of the spine. There are cracks to the spinal margins. Loss of leather at the upper and lower edges of both the front and rear boards. The edges of the boards are worn, and corners bumped and rubbed. The page edges have ink staining. The pastedowns and end papers are marbled. Previous owners' names neatly in ink to one of the preliminary pages. The preliminaries, up to and including the title page, have some stains and light foxing, the same applies to the blank pages at the rear. The pages at the beginning of Numa Pompilius are partially unbound, so that the lower part of pages 145 to 168 extend beyond the fore edges of the rest of the text block. Overall, a reading copy in fair condition.
