Titre : The Works of Samuel Johnson
Éditeur : George Dearborn, New York
Date d'édition : 1834
Reliure : Hardcover
Etat du livre : Good Minus
Two volumes in full leather bindings. The calf leather is dry and the boards are heavily rubbed and scuffed, but the hinges and joints are intact with no incipient splitting. The spines are likewise worn but the gilt titles and volume numbers remain readable. Heads and tails of the spines are in good shape with no chipping. Corners are also in good shape being only lightly bumped. The edges are well rubbed but rather evenly. Beautifully marbled end papers are in very good condition. All pages edges are marbled but now somewhat faded with the top edges dusty. The only markings in the volumes is an almost-disappeared signature on the reverse of the first free endpapers. The rest is clean but with scattered foxing (whose level is better than usual for this publishing period) and only light toning to the text pages. There is a tissue guarded engraved frontispiece to each volume, with the first being a portrait of Johnson. The pages on which the frontispieces are placed are heavily browned, however the tissue guards (browned themselves) have maintained the engravings at a lighter level. The multiple free endpapers to each volume are foxed and/or browned. The volumes consist of 570 and 699 pages printed in double columns in small but legible type. An early compact nice quality set - even more so if the suppleness of the dried leather could be restored - with all of Johnson's manifold great writings. About 6.3 x 10 in (16 x 25.4 cm).
