A handbook and guide to Marquetry.

First Edition published in 1954 by English Universities Press Ltd.

Hardback with dust jacket, price clipped (inside front cover, price remain on inside back cover)

93 pages. Several b/w illustrations. Dust jacket has several tears, creases and scuff marks. Spine has faded. Original bookseller sticker on fep. Inscription to previous owner on ffep. Pages are clean and tight to the binding.

If you need further information or clarity on the condition of the book then please get in touch. I’ve given the top line on the condition of the book as sometimes it’s not possible to describe every small imperfection. The book is vintage and second-hand so there may be discolouration, fading, shelfwear etc associated with a book that is over twenty years old. Also as the book is vintage, there may be an “old book” smell! This is simply a result of the degradation of the chemicals involved in the bookmaking process. I’m more than happy to give more details and photos on request.
