Good Words for 1862

£19.99

Product description

Good Words was a monthly magazine first published in 1860 by the Scottish publisher Alexander Strahan; the first editor was Norman Macleod D.D. The magazine included overtly religious material, but also fiction and non-fiction articles on general subjects, including Science. The standard for content was that the devout should be able to read it on Sundays without sin. It is extensively illustrated in black and white. The binding is quarter-leather with marbled boards and is extensively bumped and worn. The leather is peeling from the lower front corner and the spine is worn and bumped. The gilded titling is quite clear. Inside there are cracks to the front and rear hinges and the pages are loose. There is quite a bit of foxing to the first few, and last few pages. The text is clear.
