John Roberts and others
C. Arthur Pearson Ltd, 4th impression 1919
A comprehensive look at the game of billiards. Originally published in 1901, this copy a later printing.
Hardback – cloth bound boards with decorated title to spine and front board. pp viii, 320, including b/w illustrations. 8.5 x 5.75 inches approx. (220mm x 143mm).
Cloth a little rubbed and worn to extremities and a touch pulled to tail of spine; endpapers showing foxing/offsetting and with a patch of glue residue/surface abrasion to front paste-down; occasional foxing to pages and a general dustiness but otherwise internally clean.
Overall, showing light wear commensurate with age and storage however remains a particularly nice copy.
