Pater's studies of fictional characters
First edition, first impression. Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine. 21 × 14cm, 180pp + 4pp ads.
Walter Pater's psychological studies of fictional characters in historical settings. Chapters are: A Prince of Court Painters; Denys L'Auxerrois; Sebastian van Storck; and Duke Carl of Rosenmold.
A good reading copy. The cloth is frayed to the joints at the head of the spine, spine ends bumped. There is light and occasional foxing and the binding is pulled a little in places. However, the book remains perfectly readable and generally in good order.
