Inventory No. 101173

Title continues: 'To Which are Prefixed Three Dissertations: 1. Of the Origin of Romantic Fiction in Europe. 2. On the Introduction of Learning into England. 3. On the Gesta Romanorum.' A new edition, carefully revised. Full gilt-ruled calf. Spines renewed, possibly for library binding in late nineteenth century / early twentieth. Each volume bears a City of Liverpool Public Libraries bookplate inside the front board, which I believe to be a Stephen Gooden design [engraver, 1892-1955]. Each bookplate has been stamped 'Withdrawn' in red ink. There are faded library catalogue numbers on the spine (were gilt; now mostly rubbed out). Small library label inside each of the rear boards: City of Liverpool Reference Library, date 1947. No further library marks. Gilt tooled spines. Morocco spine labels. The boards are quite heavily rubbed at the corners, with some scuffs to the boards, exposing back to the board in patches at the edges - in this case sounds worse than looks. Contents however are very clean. Firmly bound. Bright and clean. Very little foxing - a little to vol. III. A couple of light pencil marks in the margins (very few). Frontispiece illustration of author in volume I, with tissue guard. 1824. 4 vols. pp. 123, cclxix, 203; 520; 470; 482. Uniform. 21.5cm x 14cm. An attractive set. A VERY HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK mainland as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. Small surcharge may apply to UK highlands and islands and N. Ireland; larger surcharge for overseas destinations. NO additional charges for sending within the UK mainland.
