Ethnology and Archaeology of the Malay Peninsula

by Evans, H. N

Condition: Fair-/No Jacket

London: Cambridge, 1927. Book. Fair-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Interesting copy, perhaps a publishers mock up of some kind? Sound, lavish gatefold seems alright if not perfect, plates intact. The oddnesses are as follows, each illustrated and photographic plate has 2 neat, diagonal black ink stripes near their edges. The stripes are each a bit larger than wooden match sticks and seemingly never affect the content meaningfully, they are symmetrical and serve some purpose unknown to me. Also noted, the occasional page end protruding at gutter as though a page had been cut out, this can not be the case as the pagination and content are consistent. Surely suspect is production mock up. In any case it is otherwise prettily and sturdily made if worn, text heavily decked, boards are neat, aged charm, but have the mild batter and stain that might be expected. There are significant removal scars on 1st and last pastedowns, library markings? Not impossible. Name penned neatly FEP. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. We assure the buyer that books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. *.
