About This Item

London: Smith Elder, 1883. Late-Victorian walks in London with a great deal of historical insight. Complete two-volume revised and corrected fifth edition (first 1877), in black buckram with gilt titles and coat of arms on front board, with red rules, black endpapers and b/w illustrations. Vol 1: 531pp inc index, Vol 2: 557pp inc index, plus 2pp adverts. Both volumes in similar condition - hinges are starting to crack, as are jonts of Vol 1. Page edges yellowed and dusty with light foxing throughout. Both volumes have neat gift inscriptions on half-title (dated 16.12.1889). Modest wear to corners, more to head and foot of spine and head of spines have small losses, more to Vol 1. Otherwise the text blocks are clean and tight with a couple of relevant newspaper cutting slipped in. Overall a decent set. Heavy set will require extra postage. Ref:103823. Fifth Edition. Buckram. G+/N/a. Illus. by Augustus J. C. Hare. 13x19cm.
