What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, Illustrated, Leather Binding
Robert Smith Surtees (1805-1864) was an English editor and novelist, most widely known for the cockney character of Jorrocks.
Illustrated with thirteen hand coloured plates, as well as in-text illustrations. Collated, complete.
With the ownership inscription of George Ricketts dated 1880 to the front blank.
The first edition of this work.
In a half crushed morocco binding. Externally generally smart; spine is a little faded as to be expected. Rubbed to the joints and the tail of the spine, and a little bumped to the extremities. Internally, binding is generally firm; a slight strain to the front hinge. Pages are a touch age-toned to the edges, with occasional spotting and offsetting opposing plates.
