Later (18th cent.?) binding of full calf; spine in six compartments with raised bands, gilt; red leather lettering piece, gilt. Hinges neatly mended else a very good copy with a fine textblock. The copy of lawyer, scholar, Greek translator and editor of the Chicago Tribune Horace White (1834-1916), with his bookplate on the front… Read more
