Photos carefully as they are part of the description. All of my books are VERY OLD and have 100+ years of wear to varying degrees. Boards - very secure, front cover picture with some wear [forgive the flash spot].
Back cover looks very good for its age. Spine ends - very good - curled but not split. Good - the back 2 are bumped, but not nearly as bad as the top front 1. Inner hinges - very good.
Writing - prize sticker on front paste down [school of science and art]. Rips /folds - no rips that I saw - 1 small fold / apx 120 leaves with a small bump on bottom edge. Spine gilt is still fairly bright. A VERY NICE & RARE ONE FOR YOUR LIBRARY! Please Add me to your Favorites list.
AND check back now and then to see what's new! Otherwise I can't send you a new invoice.Don't panic, I will get to ASAP. T can take up to 14 days to get back East. All others please contact me. This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to.
So the old book smell doesn't bother me. As far as I can tell -this book does not smell bad. The item "RAREWORLDS INHABITANTS CUSTOMS DRESS ANIMALS CHINA EGYPT EUROPE++ 900 PICTURES" is in sale since Saturday, April 18, 2020. This item is in the category "Antiques\Manuscripts".
