Breviarium Romanum 1707. The binding is in good condition but with some historic worming holes to the pastedowns and, to a lesser extent, endpapers. Worming is not invasive but there are some holes to a block of text towards the back of the book, approx. p. cxlx onwards - a small single hole to the first few pages, then a double hole; pages clxxxi-ccxviii have a slightly larger hole which partly obscures letters in the last two lines of text. There is a long repaired tear to page 225/226 - this is quite neat; there is a small amount of loss to the words in the bottom margin corner, affecting the bottom two lines of text. A few other minor repairs to pages. Four engraved illustrations including frontispiece. Black and red text in two columns on the page. Some pages are loose and a number of others are loosening. This copy would benefit from some careful restoration. Page edges marbled. pp. [16], 624, ccxliv. 24cm. Ribbon page marker is present but fragile. A HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK. 309094

25 Camberwick Green Nursery Rhymes No 3
Adby, Pete (illustrated by) Dean & Son, Ltd London 1969 0603015166 / 9780603015168 Hardcover Good No Jacket Book 4to - over 9 - 12" tall 
Glazed pictorial boards. A very nice clean copy of this scarce Camberwick Green book. Pages all clean, though browned at the edges. The sewn binding is in really good condition.

Considering that it is usually the binding that becomes weak with these picture books I would still classify it as a near VG copy.
