Antique 1856 copy of The Words of George Herbert. Such a beautiful old book! I cannot say enough about the beautiful covers alone! I think this might be one of the oldest books I've come across. For being over 150 years old, it's in pretty good shape. There's obviously some aging and the covers aren't perfect by any means. The pages are still bound to the spine, but there's a split where the front and back covers meet the binding, so the covers are a bit more flimsy than they should be. Pages have age spots here and there, but overall the pages are definitely legible and are not brittle. There are a few full page illustrations such as the one shown. A lovely lovely old book for the collector or keep for yourself and enjoy! :) 466 total pages. Beautiful handwritten pencil inscription on first inside blank page from September 1864. :)
