What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Leather Binding, Rebound

The second edition of this work, published the year after the first.

Credited to 'Peter Paul Pallet', this was the work of antiquary and author of topographical works Rev. Richard Warner.

Retaining the original half title.

With a loosely inserted leaf titled 'A Key to the Characters and Places'.

Comprising five dialogues which convey Bath as a city full of vanity, hypocrisy and vice, this is an attractively bound copy of this amusing work.

Condition

Rebound in full calf, with endpapers renewed. Externally, fine. Internally, firmly bound. Light spotting and the odd handling mark throughout, with light contemporary notations to a small number of leaves.

Very Good Indeed
