What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding

The first edition. 

In half calf with marbled paper to the boards and gilt details to the spine. 

Illustrated with headpieces, tailpieces and 7 plates. Collated complete. 

This work was written by English solicitor and antiquary J. H. Markland. The work provides a description and opinion on certain churches and their monuments, accompanied with lovely illustrations. Markland has written other works on religion such as his first work titled 'A few Plain Reasons for Adhering to the Church'.

Condition

Bound in half calf with marbled paper to the boards. Externally very smart with slight rubbing to the joints, the odd minor mark to the boards and very light fading to the spine. Bookplate from 'Estcourt Library' to the front pastedown with front hinges starting. Internally firmly bound with clean and generally bright pages with only the odd spot to the rear.

Very Good
