Discovering antiques, the story of world antiques
1972, first edition
Boards are sturdy and solid, very well-made book. Frank aboard shows age at edges, a bit of tanning though is still quite bright rich and colorful at both front and back cover.
Interior is extremely beautiful, very very clean, crisp, illustrations pictures are bright and colorful. It smells heavenly, as in exactly how an old book should, well cared for well-kept.
Upon very close inspection we will notice that the book is very slightly rolled. Also at the top edges there is some very small marking and the majority of the dust has settled there.
Overall still a very excellent copy and will display very very nicely for you.
