Book opens right to left. 511 pages. 32mo: 4.75 by 3.5 inches in size and 1.75 inches thick. Sewn binding.
Cream colored celluloid cover (front, back and spine) with cream cloth underneath. An ornatebrass medallion is centered in the middle of front cover. A plain hinged brass clasp is missing the peg to hold the volume closed.
The endpapers are an ivory moire. Both pastedowns are cracked. The sewn binding has several loose sections: pages 160-192 are held in by a lose thread, pages 193 to 222 are detached and laid in. The book is shaken. The page marked 322 is actually page 223. The remainder of the book appears firmly bound. The pages are bordered with bright gilt on all sides. Pages 508 to 511 are cut very tight on the top margin so that the page numbers are not visible. The blank pages after page 511 to the endpaper are chipped at the midpoint where the clasp is. We note smallstains on pages 224 and 225 and fingermarks in the margin of page 121. Overall the pages are bright and clean.
The celluloid cover is chipped at three out of four spine points and on corners of back cover. The front cover is cracked at both corners. The cloth underneath the celluloid is frayed in the spine area. There are some scratches and some light soil to the celluloid.
As you'll note in our photographs cello tape has been used across the spine and onto the covers.
We do have a similar volume available in a separate sale. They both came from the same estate.
