The Poetical Works of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
c1880, in an attractive wood veneer binding
Reprint. Leather spine with wood veneer boards, painted to look like marquetry with central decorative roundel and border. All edges gilt. 18.5 × 12cm, 633pp
An attractively bound copy of Longfellow's verse, with illustrations by Keeley Halswelle amongst others.
The binding is in good condition but chipped to the bottom corners and a little to the edges. The leather spine is rubbed but good. The contents are quite heavily worn with weakening to the binding and creasing to the edges, and don't open very smoothly for the first few pages probably due to the rebind. However, this remains an attractive veneer binding.
