Description

Oxford, Painted by John Fulleylove and Described by Edward Thomas. This copy is a first edition published by A&C Black, London. With 60 excellent full-page colour plate illustrations of the city's locations.

The pages have tanned and foxed on the edges. The top edge is gilt. There is also tanning and foxing inside mostly concentrated at the first and last few pages with just some mild occasional foxing inside. All of the charming colour plates are present (see photos), and they have their protective tissue guards which each have a description of the location depicted. There is a long inscription on the front pastedown which includes some writing in Latin. Otherwise there is no further writing or marks of pervious ownership.

The blue cloth boards have fared very well with just some mild rubbing around the edges and to the gilt. Otherwise really very little sign of any wear to the boards for a book of 115 years old.

The main condition point to note is that there is a split to the cloth at the top of the spine (see close-up photo). The blue of the spine has faded in comparison to the boards. The gilt titles are still present but are not as bright as on the front. With mild rubbing to the cloth at the head, tail and along the hinges.

Despite a bit of wear to the spine this remains a strongly bound, richly illustrated and attractive antique book. Your copy of "Oxford" will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon.


H 23 cm x W 17.5 cm, 265 pages, 1.2 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (With the exception of a small number of countries).
