Boston: Crocker & Brewster, 1862. New Edition. Leather bound. 776pp. Thick sextodecimo [16 cm] Brown leather, with a gilt stamped title on the spine, raised bands, and gilt ruled borders on the spine and covers. Marbled endsheets. Good. The spine is heavily rolled back and subtly faded. The extremities are rubbed, and the front cover is a bit scratched. The joints and corners of the covers have had some very subtle restoration. Several minor stains on the text block edges. There is a previous owner's name stamped in gilt, vertically on the front cover. The rear endsheet is cracked along the hinge, and the rear free endsheet is just beginning to detach. The top corners of the pages are very sporadically dog-eared. Some of the pages are very lightly creased, and a handful of pages have light soiling. The book is sturdy. Item #34881
