Cassell's Pictorial Scrap Book

£120.00

Product description

Published in 1889, “Cassell’s Pictorial Scrap Book” is a half-leather Quarto (9.5” x 12.5”) with red cloth boards. It has gilt lettering and bands on the spine, as well as a red spotted decoration on the fore-edge and bottom-edge. The top-edge has a (faded) gilt colouring. This book almost entirely consists of black and white illustrations; these illustrations depict a variety of historical, biblical, and fantastical scenes. Condition: the covers are quite loose, and they could become completely detached with use. The covers and spine also exhibit some moderate to severe marking, staining, rubbing, and corner-bumping. The books’ edges show some mild bumping and marking. The interior pages are somewhat crinkled and marked in places, but are generally in good condition. The binding is fairly strong in most places. Overall, this book is in good condition for its age.
