In very good condition, here is an antique hardback leather bound copy of The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Elizabeth Gaskell. Published in 1924 by John Grant, Edinburgh. With some rubbing to the leather being the only real condition point to note, detailed below.

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or inscriptions. With just some occasional scattered spotting. Has a black and white portrait frontispiece, plus twenty-five further black and white illustrations (see photos). The top closed edge is gilt.

In a blue leather binding with blue cloth sides. The leather spine has five raised bands with gilt decoration in each compartment and gilt titles. There is a little rubbing to the leather around the edges and at the corners. The sides have some light scuffs, with a small white mark on the back. With rubbing to the leather also along the spine joints. There are some scuffs to the spine which has removed the blue surface coloured layer in a couple of places, but this is minor. Otherwise the binding is really good and strong with no cracked hinges.

A tight, square book. Your antique copy of The Life of Charlotte Bronte will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and will be sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 22 cm x W 15 cm, 526 pages 0.97 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* 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.
