Item Condition: Used Good. 1898 first edition hardbacks in good condition. Both volumes in very similar condition. Owner’s signature on ffep, no other marks, clean and bright, tight binding. The illustrated cloth boards have significant wear to the spines. It looks like a brief encounter with a liquid which has smudged away most of the spine title and illustration. By contrast, the front illustrations are in excellent condition. Otherwise just a little rubbing to edges. These are heavy books which may require additional postage. Items are dispatched the same or the following working day. Please note our excellent customer feedback.
