History of the Names of Men, Nations, and Places Vol. 1

£19.99

Product description

"... In Their Connection With The Progress of Civilisation. From The French Of Eusebius Salverte."

AKA "Silverte's History of Names and Places"

Substantial maroon cloth covered boards with decorative blind stamped margins. The spine, which is faded, has the details in gilt text.

Very little shelf-wear and the corners show only minimal bumping. The hinges and binding are sound. Some foxing and discolouration affects the early and later pages and the page ends, but the main text shows little damage.

There are no inscriptions or marking.

The top and outer page ends are untrimmed, in some cases this has lead to the pages not being cut, so they are still connected along the top edge. This mainly affects pages in the second half of the book.
