Issued by The Folio Society as a ‘Special Publication’ around 1991/92 and available in two flavours, the UK edition being titled as Chambers Biographical Dictionary (W. & R. Chambers, 1990) – see example here – but otherwise identical in appearance.
Hardback – full black leather binding with title and decoration in gilt to spine and front board, in a custom-made black buckram covered slipcase. pp xii, 1604. 9.5 x 6 inches approx. (239mm x 155mm).
Boards a little bruised and worn to corner tips; light crushing to spine ends (spine leather extends beyond height of boards).
Overall, light wear but otherwise a nice, clean copy in a custom slipcase.
