An Antarctic Mystery.

Contents clean and bright, with the original bright decorative endpapers. Perhaps twenty-five pages have a little spotting, and there's more intrusive foxing to about twenty others, including the title and frontis. Two pages have dog-ear creases. No names or marking. All edges gilt. 19.5x13cms, in the original pictorial red cloth over bevelled boards, titled in gilt. Front bright, with two one-inch pale patches near the spine from an old spill, and a knock to the upper corner. Pictorial spine dulled, with a little wear to the ends; plain lower board bright. A very nice firm copy of one of Verne's most intriguing tales.
