Practical Knowledge for All - A Comprehensive Self-Educator in Five Volumes

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Red buckram covered boards with faux leather effect, the publisher's logo is blind stamped in the middle of the front. The book details are on the spine in gilt text within a black box.

The books are in fine condition and appear to have been rarely, if ever, opened (hence lack of pictures) and they have been well stored.

The only issues we found are the volume one has a small black mark on the spine, some of the top corners are very slightly bumped, and some of the boards a little dusty.

No inscriptions, no foxing.

Hinges and binding as new.

It is a very rare event to find a complete set of books of this age in such fine condition.

Because of their weight these book will be sent by courier, please provide your contact details so that they can contact you if necessary.
