The Spectator a New Edition with biographical notices of the contributors, 1867 William Tegg, 8 b&w engraved portraits

£30.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Publisher: William Tegg, London, 1867, New edition / 1st edition thus. Hardback, half-leather cover, 722 pages, attractive marbled endpapers and page block edges, illustrated with b&w engraved portraits of Addison, Henley, Parnell, Broome, Hughes, Pope, Steele, Tickell. The half leather cover, in green cloth boards with light brown calf corners and spine with gilt titling and designs and raised bands to spine, is in good, sound condition for its age with some rubbing to corners and along spine, a little bumping to spine extremities and some fading to spine. Internally the book is in very good, sound, clean and firm condition, especially considering its age. Lovely bright marbled endpapers and page block edges. The eight portrait engravings are in good, bright condition (several of the portrait pages have a stain across top left corner but this does not impinge on the portraits themselves). Text pages are all generally clean and bright with a little foxing here and there. Some foxing to endpapers and prelims. Small auction number sticker at top edge of front paste-down. A sound 1867 copy of this splendid collection of Spectator articles, journal entries and first hand accounts & reminiscences covering a period ranging from 1710 to 1714 providing a wonderful first hand snapshot of daily life, current events, opinions and attitudes of England at the time.
