Walter Scott
The Works Of Sir Walter Scott Set of 25 Antique 1871 Victorian Leather Classics
Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black. The Works Of Sir Walter Scott Set of 25 Antique 1871 Victorian Leather Classics. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. This entire set of antique leather books has been treated with Cellugel (which is safe for all book materials) to preserve the leather and inhibit deterioration from red rot. The leather has pre-existing scars and wear. This is a genuine antique book set, literally a piece of history. If it were sentient, it could tell of over a hundred years full of lives it has touched and hands it has passed through. Every year, more of these irreplaceable treasures are lost-- to fires, floods, etc., or simple carelessness. It is my hope to rescue as many as possible and help them find homes where they will be cherished and passed on to future generations. Previous owner's name is stamped on the front of each book. The back board of Volume 8 has been repaired--the marble paper on the outside coordinates with but does not match the other volumes; the endpaper inside does not match. No writing, tears or odors. The text block in all volumes is in really nice condition, probably unread in most cases. All photos depict the actual books listed; please examine them carefully. If you have any questions, please ask. More photos available upon request. Please visit my eBay store to find more great books! Thanks for looking! Your purchase supports small family business.
