CONDITION

In original paper wraps. Externally, generally smart. Chipping and bumping to the extremtieis and to the head and tail of spines. Wraps are slightly age toned to the spines and edges. Large closed tear to the spine of Vol 34 no 4. Vol 36 no.4 is detached from outer wraps which are rather spotted. Closed tear to head of spine to Vol 38 No2. Tidemarks to the front wrap of Vol 39 No.2 at the joint. Spots to the rear wrap of Vol 42. No2 Part 1. Heavy tidemarks and damp staining to the wraps and to the first few pages of Vol 43. No3 (Part I). This damp staining has also resulted in cockling to the pages of this volume. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Pages are bright with the odd spots throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD.

What Our Customers Say...

 It is always such a pleasure to deal with Rooke Books inasmuch as your inventory is unparalleled and communicating with you is effortless!

James, UK

 Thank you for the very good packing and the quick delivery of the sixteen volumes of the Letters of Horace Walpole, the Paget Toynbee edition, which arrived today. I only ordered them on the nineteenth, and here they are on the twenty-first, only two days later. Excellent service.  I have unpacked all of the books carefully and put them on my shelves lovingly, and intend to begin reading them in the New Year, a treat I look forward to. The next time I  am in Bath I must come and browse in your shop.

Richard, USA
