Offering an outstanding estate discovery. Four books with six novels contained inside: Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Pride & Prejudice, Persuation, and Northanger Abbey. The books have decorated leather spines, marbelized covers, marbelized edges to all sides of the papers, and marbelized end papers. Full page illustrations with tissue across from each title page.

Each book is signed as a gift to a Ridgely family member inside the front cover and dated 1886. Three of the books are structurally tight. The front cover to Sense & Sensibility has come mostly loose and will require repair. Wear to the corners, edges, and spines. Leather on the spines has light cracking occuring. Light surface wear to the cover marbelized paper, including a small missing piece on one book. Surface wear to the blue leather in spots, some light discoloration. Smells fresh. No evidence of widespread foxing-just a few pale spots on on the front interior blank page. Overall a tight set that displays well.

Each book measures 5 1/4 inches x 7 5/8 inches x 1 1/2 inches.

We have been asked to sell the contents of the Ridgely historical estate of Baltimore Maryland. Considered to be one of the most prominent families in Marylands history, reaching back to Colonial times, the Ridgely family was one of the most successful and wealthy in the towns history. See more data at: http://www.umbc.edu/che/hampton/ridgely_family.html

We are currently offering the book collection from the family library. The books have been in storage for over 100 years. A very rare, special offering of books.

Guaranteed antique & authentic. Not a modern reproduction. Satisfaction guaranteed.
