The Short Stories of Thomas Hardy (Macmillan, 1928) Leather Binding in Slipcase
The Short Stories of Thomas Hardy
Macmillan and Co. Limited, 1928
Hardback – in full, soft leather binding; gilt title and decoration to spine and front board; blind rules to front and rear boards; page-block all edges gilt; ribbon page marker sewn-in. 1076pp printed on thin paper. 7.25 x 5 inches approx. (184mm x 128mm).
Spine just a touch sunned/faded; page edge gilt a little marked in places; offsetting and some foxing to Wessex map endpapers; occasional foxing or stain and the odd fingerprint mark to pages but generally very clean throughout.
Overall, a particularly well preserved copy – lovely indeed in its new custom-made slipcase.
