A propos de cet article

Tight clean 2 volume set bound in contemporary attractive and robust blue calf half-leather. Gilt bright on sunfaded spines. Raised bands and elaborate gilt tooled compartments, double leather title labels. The spine leather has a dried out appearance, but no powderiness thereby, and no hinge weakness or splitting. Irregularly ridged royal blue cloth with gilt keylines where it adjoins the leather. Marbled endpapers, marbled text block edges, shiny and sleek save for one misaligned page edge, which has been tipped in about 1mm proud. Folding map crisp and in good order. Neat armorial bookplates on pastedowns, free of other markings. Minor foxing freckles to prelims, text block clean with just the occasional freckle. Beautiful musky fruity old-book aroma with no trace of mould or dampness notes. Corners a little rubbed also hinge edges, what amounts to a pleasant patina. Bound without adverts. ix+351pp+folding map, vi+423pp, double flyleaves, engraved plates as called for. An important work by an accomplished contemporary of Darwin. Size: 12mo.
