What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, Early Edition, Leather Binding

Robert Smith Surtees (1805-1864) was an English editor and novelist, most widely known for the cockney character of Jorrocks.

In a beautiful binding by Hatchards of Piccadilly.

A smart example of Surtees' novel.

Condition

In a quarter crushed morocco binding. Externally lovely, with just a little bumping to the extremities. Internally, generally firmly bound; front hinge is strained and exposed at the title page. Pages are a little spotted and offset opposite plates.

Very Good
