Product description

Painted by F. De Haenen, with text by G. Dobson, H. M. Grove and H. Stewart. The book contains numerous illustrations, both in colour and black and white, to accompany the descriptive account of Russia, its major cities, the provinces and countryside, and its people and customs, all as seen in the years shortly before the Russian Revolution. Decorative brown and orange cloth covers with gilt titling to the spine. The front and rear boards are heavily worn, probably as a result of water damage. There are creases to the spine, which is also rubbed in places, and has crushing and some small nicks at the head and tail. Board edges are worn, and the corners are bumped. Page edges are dusty. The front and rear pastedowns are significantly water stained, and the paper around the margins of the front pastedown has peeled off in places. The front and rear free end papers are stained; the front free end paper has the faint remnant of an ink inscription and/or previous owner's name, whilst the rear free end paper has the remnants of pencil writing. There are also some small open tears around the edges of the front free end paper, which is partially detached towards the bottom. The front and rear hinges are cracked, with exposed webbing, whilst some internal hinges towards the rear of the book show signs of slight weakening. Water stains affect the page margins (but not text) in several places. There are occasional light pencil lines in the margins.
