Book of the Sea - A Nautical Repository

£19.99

Product description

Long Title: "The Sea Book: A Nautical Repository of the Perils and Pleasures, Adventures, Joys, and Sufferings on the Briny Deep: Being a Summary of the Life and Doings of the Sailor Both Ashore and Afloat. Illustrated with Splendid Steel Engravings."

Plain green textured buckram covered boards with the title on the spine in gilt letters.

The spine is torn top and bottom, probably where used to extract the book from the shelf.

Slight wear to the edges, mainly around the spine and top rear corner.

The hinges are in good order, the front is a bit loose, with the pastedown torn, but the board is still well attached.

The binding is a bit delicate in places with some cracks and a few loose pages, but generally it is sound.

The page ends have a red speckled finish.

There is an inscription on the ffe.

Foxing throughout, particularly on the pages with the engravings.
