Walter Spiers. Longman, Nimmo, Bradbury and Evans, 1838.

John Leech, H.K. Browne etc. Hardcover (Half Leather). Very Good. Item #036545
ISBN: NoISBN

7 volumes bound uniformly in half black leather over green cloth - apparently all rebacked uniformly from an earlier rebinding with the earlier spines laid down - 5 raised bands, gilt compartments, etc.. Housed in a cloth box, the interior done in marbled paper. Modest wear at edges of volumes, occasional scuffs, a few spine strips chipped from the earlier rebinding ("Ask Mamma" is the only volume with significant damage in this regard - the top panel on the spine is largely missing). Generally quite attractive.
