By: Richardson, Mrs Aubrey

Price: £12.00

Quantity: 1 available


Red boards with gilt titling to the spine and the front cover. The cover shows some wear and has been damp stained, mainly to the front edge and particularly to the front corners, at some point in the past - but a former owner has coloured in the relevant areas to tone in and it looks quite reasonable, All corners and head/tail of the spine are heavily 'bumped'. There are a couple of small frays to spine top. The inner paper hinges are split but all outer hinges are tight and sound. A label has been removed from the front pastedown which also has some 'bleeding' of the cover colour inside which affects a small section at the bottom and of the foot of the ffep and the half title too. (x) + (2) + 394 pp plus a 31 page publisher's catalogue at the rear. Illustrated in b/w with 16 plates on 'art' paper, including the frontispiece. Page fore-edges browning lightly and 'rough cut' (as published) to the bottom edge. Despite the damage/repairs to the corners, the book looks quite good on the shelf with quite bright gilt titling and no damage to the spine, and is now preserved further in a clear book plastic. No Inscriptions or other Marks and Overall this is a Clean, Tight and quite bright copy.....certainly better than 'Acceptable' and better than it sounds! "The story of the one hundred and twenty Doges of Venice - from 700 - 1797." ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall
