Éditeur : Cassell, Petter, Galpin, London
Reliure : Full-Leather
Illustrateur : Doré, Gustav
Etat du livre : Very Good
No date but c. 1870. Original full leather cover. This book has been professionally rebacked and the leather renovated. There is a little loss to the gilt decoration on front and rear boards, as seen in the photo, and also to the gilt decoration along inside edges of both boards but which is still showing very attractively. Marbled endpapers. Both the front and rear hinges have been professionally strengthened when the book was renovated. PAGES, with bright gilt edges: ix (List of illustrations) + 8 page Family Register section + 644 (Main text). ILLUSTRATIONS: 103 full page b/w engravings of illustrations by GUSTAVE DORÉ, which form a superb collection of some of his work. CONDITION: Tight binding. The illustrations are all present. Some have light brown spotting, mainly in the margins and on the reverse of plates, and one is affected on the whole plate, not at all obscuring the illustration. Most of the plates are clear of any foxing. There is light brown spotting showing mainly at the front of the book and on the rear blank endpapers and in places in the main body of the text. The overall appearance of the interior is bright and clean with large clear print. No inscriptions through the text. The rear board is slightly bowed and both boards have a little discolouration which shows less to the naked eye than in a photo. FAMILY REGISTER: The pages relating to Marriages, Births and Deaths have some entries relating to the Brokenbrow family in Ilfracombe, Devon. SIZE: 32cm x 25cm x 7cm. WEIGHT: 4190 grams unpackaged. *A scarce and collectable copy in very pleasing condition.*. N° de réf. du libraire 005857
