Joseph E. Morris
Adam & Charles Black, reprint [circa 1920s]
A volume in the ‘Beautiful Britain’ series. Originally published in 1914, this copy being a later reprint of the 1920s*. Twelve colour plates by John Fulleylove.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 64pp including one b/w illustration plus colour plates. 9 x 6.5 inches approx. (230mm x 165mm).
Light wear and rubbing to dustwrapper with some bruising to corner tips. Boards bumped to corners and spine ends; endpapers very tanned and with inscription in ink to front free endpaper; pages a touch dusty and foxed throughout, offsetting to last page, but generally very clean; spotting to edges of page-block.
Nonetheless, a particularly nice, clean copy in the uncommon dustwrapper – lovely indeed.
