The Southern Coast of England

£100.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Southern Coast of England is a book that describes the southern coast of England in great detail, depicting each area of interest with one of 35 illustrations on engraving plates. The plates are separated into 5 areas; "Kent", "Sussex", "Isle of Wight", "Dorset" and "Devon and Cornwall". The geology and geography of these areas are greatly detailed, as well as culture, architecture and history, alongside other topics.

The book has all 35 engravings but the book itself is in poor condition. The spine and title page have been separated completely, but are both present and could be repairable. Many more are loose and the front and rear hinges are cracked but still held with the original webbing. There is a decorative prize presentation bookplate pasted onto the front free endpaper dated 1872. Despite all this damage, the front board still has the gilt detailing and the titles can be easily read. If the book is handled properly, it can still be fully read, considering there are no missing pages and anything that is already separated has been left inside.
