1 Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. XCVII January to June 1865
William Blackwood & Sons Edinburgh and London 1865 Half Leather Good No Jacket Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall 
Handsomely bound in half brown leather with gilt tooling to the spine, 5 raised bands, red title panel and black volume spine label. Some rubs to edges and corners and a rub / abrasion to the marbling of the front board. The spine has darkened in places - has some slightly black marks. Marbled boards, endpapers and all edges. The binding is nice and firm. Joints and hinges all very good. Contemporary armorial bookplate on the front pastedown, for Evan Charles Sutherland-Walker. There is a pale brown stain to the outer closed textblock page edges, affecting most of the textblock; just visible to the page margins at the foredges (pale marks). Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine was a long running monthly literary journal. It began in April 1817 and, when it moved HQ to London in 1905, it became simply Blackwood's Magazine. A number of notable authors published their novels and other writings in Blackwood's; for example, George Eliot, Anthony Trollope, Margaret Oliphant, Thomas Hardy, Joseph Conrad, and many others. It ceased publication in 1980. This volume contains the first printing of the first part of the novel, Miss Marjoribanks, by Mrs Oliphant, one of her best known and most successful novels. pp. 1-778. HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to orders with a delivery address outside the UK mainland, as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO extra charges for delivery within the UK mainland; small charge likely for highlands, islands and N. Ireland. 105247
