The Works of John Bunyan (1814) (3 Volumes)

£99.99

Product description

We are pleased to present this beautiful three-volume set, over 200 years old, illustrated throughout with elegant black-and-white etched plates. The first two volumes contain a biography of Bunyan and his expermental, doctinal and practical writings; the third contains allegorical, figurative and symbolical writings, including "The Pilgrim's Progress."

Each volume is bound in navy-blue leather, with delightful gilt-stamped and plain-stamped designs, and with end-papers and edges of the book blocks nicely marbled. The binding by Shutes' of Leeds. Each volume contains an engraved frontispiece, with in-text engravings and occasional black-and-white plates. Remarkably for a book of this age, the pages have almost no foxing whatsoever (there are a very few pages which are lightly spotted), and only very lightly tanned.

Unfortunately, the front board of Volume 3 has completely detached and is therefore in need of repair. It also has a pull-out diagram between pages 274 and 275 which has been torn. The exterior hinge on Volume 2 is partially split (the lower 10cm of the leather is split). However, the front board is still well-attached. In all other regards, the books are free from damage beyond the shelf-wear which is to be expected.

Should you have any queries about this item, please do contact our Preston shop on 01772 881 590.
