What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Leather Binding

The result of eight years of research, the monumental De la prostitution dans la ville de Paris is not only a history of prostitution but also one of the first empirical sociological surveys of its kind. Featuring many tables and diagrams, including a folding map of France and several other folding graphs and plates. Volume one also includes an engraved frontispiece of the author, protected by its original tissueguard. With neat ink inscriptions, dated 1873, by one Lionel McMahon, to front blank of each volume. Third edition. Complete in two volumes.

Condition

In quarter calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, rather rubbed with heavier wear to backstrips and extremities. Front joint of volume I and rear joint of volume II starting. Hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are often bright, with most of the scattered spotting confined to the first and last few pages and the margins.
