Lovely publisher’s decorative cloth binding.
Hardback – green cloth with gilt titles and decoration to spine and front board; top edge gilt. 193pp plus b/w plates. 9 x 6 inches approx. (230mm x 155mm).
Covers with just light rubbing to extremities and the occasional rust spot to cloth; spine ends a touch pushed in. Offsetting to endpapers; the occasional foxing or mark throughout and with spotting to page edges but generally pages very clean.
Overall, a particularly bright and well preserved example – lovely indeed.
