The Oxford Book of Ballads - First Edition

£14.99

Product description

A lovely hardback copy of the Oxford book of Ballads chosen by Arthur Quiller-Couch in very good condition and dated 1910. This is a collection of ballads from various sources throughout British history. Including such as Robin Hood, King Arthur and passages from the bible.

The book is in very good condition with only minor edge-wear and bumping to the spine and front cover. The back cover appears water damaged and discoloured. There is a lovely map on the FEPs which is watermarked. There is some foxing to the title page and rear inside leaf along with some marks inside the book but the type is clear and legible. The edges are uncut, in some places leading to pages being sealed together and the top edge is gilt. There is a piece of the FFEP missing at the top right corner.
