RARE 1832 "SIR EDWARD SEAWARD'S NARRATIVE OF HIS SHIPWRECK" ANTIQUE BOOKS (P5). Great RARE antique set of fine binding small hardback books from 1832 which is "Sir Edward Seaward's narrative of his shipwreck and consequent discovery of certain islands in the Caribbean Sea with detail of many extraordinary and highly interesting events in his life from the year 1733 to 1749 as written in his own diary". Edited by Miss Jane Porter. Photos 3 & 14 shows pen writing from 1911 on the initial blank pages of both books. Photo 6 shows a partially detached page at the bottom of volume 1.
Photo 7 shows exposed cover spine between two pages of volume 1. Photo 8 shows a missing first contents page and shows a detached contents page with pen scribble on it of volume 1 but page binding and pages for the rest of volume 1 are in nice condition. Volume 2 binding and pages are in nice condition especially as these books are 191 years old.
Books measure 17cm tall x 10.5cm wide. See photos for examples of pages inside each book. International Standard takes 7 to 10 days. Both do not have tracking. If you require tracking, let me know and i'll add it to the listing(s).
Tracking cost is only a few dollars more than Standard. I try my best to genuinely describe good & bad points if any!
