In good condition here is a lovely antique edition of Longfellow's Poetical Works. Undated but would have been published in the 1890s by George Routledge & Sons, London. In beautiful decorative boards and with 83 illustrations by a number of different artists.

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound. With mild spotting to the endpapers and page edges. This copy has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership. The frontispiece illustration still has the original tissue guard. This has some creases and has a tear on the bottom edge. Gilt edged on all sides which has stayed shiny bright.

Red cloth covered boards have decoration to the front, back and spine and bevelled edges. Again in very good order. The front and back have stayed bright and un-faded with no real condition points to note. The red cloth on the spine has faded in comparison to the front and back. The gilt and the decoration remains bright here, with just a little rubbing to the head and tail.

Your antique copy of Longfellow's Poetical Works will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 19.5 cm x W 13.5 cm, 564 pages, 0.56 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the protective packaging please add a note to the order.
