English Windmills (2 Vols.)

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The two volumes are by different authors and have a slightly different appearance. Volume 1 is dated 1930; volume 2 is 1932.

Both volumes have blue/green cloth covered boards, but the shade is slightly different. Volume 1 has black margins, title and volume details, while volume 2 is similar but has no margins.

There is a small dark stain, near the title, on the front board of volume 1.

The spine of volume 2 is slightly discoloured with exposure.

Very little wear, just some slight creasing at the top and bottom of the spines.

The corners of volume 1 are slightly bumped.

There are no inscriptions.

In both cases the hinges are in excellent condition and the bindings are still tight indicating that they have rarely if ever been read, hence we did not force pages open in order to take pictures.

Foxing is not evident in volume 1, there are a few light marks in volume 2, but they are not a big feature.

Nice set that will suit collector.
