Winged Words on Chantrey's Woodcocks.
John Murray, London 1857 - 120pp. 1857. First edition. 8vo. John Murray. A charming and very attractive book. Bound by B.M. Pickering (London) in full green morocco leather with their name stamped to the head of the front endpaper and their attractive small oval bookseller crest pasted to the upper corner of the front paste-down. Five raised bands to the spine with the title in gilt. All edges gilt. An attractive gilt frieze work to the margins of the inner boards. The endpapers marbled. Six charming steel engraved plates as called for including a frontispiece. An armorial bookplate of Edward Wilfred Fordham neatly pasted to the front paste-down. The book remains firmly bound with no splitting to the hinges/joints. The lower two board corners bumped. Light or slight rubbing to the leather at the head and tail of the spine and to the board corners. Some light foxing to the endpapers - extremely slight elsewhere. The verse in Greek and English. An attractive well preserved copy of probably the most charming book on woodcocks! Shipping from the UK [Attributes: First Edition]
