A bundle of two antique books with decorated wine red or maroon and gilded spines and red white blue and cream marbled boards. These books have been specifically chosen for the way they look. These were part of a set and look wonderful as a matching pair! Both are historical novels by the same author, about various world monarchs. They do have flaws which are described below.

PLEASE NOTE: CHRISTMAS DELIVERY WILL REQUIRE UPGRADING THE SHIPPING TO PRIORITY MAIL AT CHECKOUT. Normal USPS Media Mail delivery will not get it there by Christmas. See our shipping information for the prices.

These beautiful vintage books would make the perfect decorative touch for your parlor - or any room in your house!

A lovely pair of old books which have the beautiful warm glow of time and age and look gorgeous on a shelf or table.

1) Frederick and His Family by L. Muhlbach. [In English] translated from the German by Mrs. Chapman Coleman and her Daughters. Appleton Co., NY , 1910.

2) Henry the VIII and His Court or Catharine Parr L. Muhlbach. [In English] translated from the German by Rev H.N. Pierce, DD. Appleton Co., NY , 1910.

Description and condition of both books:

Maroon Half leather with marbled boards colored in lush shades of blue, maroon and cream and which have been given a mysterious moire effect - there are gilt decorations to spine. Top edge is gilt. Frontispiece photogravure with tissue protector. In both books, on the front paste-down, are the handsome bookplates of the original owner.

Covers and spine have some surface abrasion and chipping to both the leather sections and boards, especially at and along the edges. Page edges are dust-darkened and stained. Corners are abraded and bumped. Interior has some spotting to fixed endpapers, some light foxing and toning to pages.

Lovely old volumes for a shelf, desk or table!


Dimensions of the stack of books: 5.5" x 7.75" x 3"
