BAD HUGH Mary J. Holmes Antique Victorian Book Lady Litho

This old work is “Bad Hugh” by Mary J. Holmes and published by Hurst and Company. The authoress was famous for her romance novels which were enlivened by good morals and twisted plots.

This antique book is app. 7.5”x5” with 318 pages. This has cloth covered hard boards with a paste down illustration of a pretty blonde. This is in good condition overall with some corner, edge, spine wear and bumping. There is some soiling and discoloration to the back cover. There is cracking to the front and back hinges. The back blank page is loose and torn but all other pages are intact. There is some age toning. The inside is clean. There is a slight musty odor - the book was in a box in a basement. It is dry and not mildewy but does need airing
