What Our Customers Say...
A very scarce work. 'Evening Amusements' is an interesting observation on the astronomical circumstances in 1816, including a table of positions for each month of the year.. Written by William Frend, a clergyman and social reformer. Frend was amidst some conservatory after publishing the pamphlet 'Peace and Union recommended to the Associated Bodies of Republicans and Anti-republicans', which condemns the Church of England. Some of his other works include 'An Address to the Inhabitants of Cambridge and its Neighbourhood', 'Principles of Algebra', and 'Principles of Taxation'. With four pages of publisher's adverts to the rear.
In the original paper covered boards. Externally, smart. Light rubbing and marking to the boards. Light discolouration and rubbing to the spine. Rubbing to the spine has caused a very little loss of the spine label to the front joint. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with just the very odd spot.
Very Good Indeed
