The Life of General Washington [in fine marbled cloth publisher's binding]
Office of the National Illustrated Library, London 1851 - [2 Vols] Beautiful publisher's marbled-cloth binding on this 1851 edition, stamped in blind to boards with gilt to spine showing the American eagle wreathed in stars. Yellow coated endpapers with the contemporary ownership signature of 'Charles F Stanger Spalding' to both volumes. Both books have engraved frontispieces by Duplessis (Washington and Franklin), engraved title pages with vignettes which precede the letter press title. There is some fading to the spines of both volumes and rubbing to extremities but overall a very good set in a splendid and most unusual binding.Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book.
