The Cornhill Magazine Volumes 10, 11 and 12

£24.99

Product description

Three volumes of The Cornhill Magazine: Vol. 10 (July-December 1864); Vol. 11 (January-June 1865); and Vol. 12 (July-December 1865). The main works included in these volumes are Armadale by Wilkie Collins and Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell (although neither is complete - they each begin with their respective opening chapters but the concluding chapters of each are contained in Vol. 13, which is not present here). The books are not uniform. Vol. 10 is half leather (tan leather over red marbled boards), but the front cover is detached, the rear cover is almost detached and the original spine is missing; the book has a detached wrap-around cover of orange boards and spine, the spine having gilt titling and a separate pasted label showing "VOL X". Vol. 11 has embossed red cloth covers with gilt titling to the front cover and spine; 10 mm of the backstrip is missing at the tail of the spine. Vol. 12 is half leather (brown leather over brown marbled boards), the spine having gilt titling on brown leather panels, four gilt-decorated raised bands and gilt decoration at the head and tail. Each volume has bumped corners, some edge wear and generally rubbed and marked covers, and some weakening of a few hinges. Internally, the text block of each of the three volumes (a) is tightly bound (although the front free end paper of Vol. 10 is detached and the illustration between pages 460 and 461 of Vol. 12 is almost detached) (b) has age-toned pages (c) has sporadic foxing throughout.
