Here is a lovely copy of The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith. This edition also includes a selection of Goldsmith's poems. In a decorative binding and with four illustrations by CE Brock (one colour, three black and white). Undated but would have been published around 1908 by Cassell and Company, London. In good condition for a book of well over 110 years old, with just a few points to note, detailed below.

The pages are mildly tanned but are otherwise clean and tightly bound with no writing or inscriptions. Has some tanning and spotting to the endpapers. The colour frontispiece also has a fair amount of tanning. Cracks open at the hinge towards the end, but this in no way effects the binding of the text block which is good and strong.

Bright red cloth covered boards have black and gilt stamped decoration to the front and spine, with a colour paste down. With just a few faint dark marks on the rear board. The front board is in great condition, with shiny gilt titles. The red of the spine has faded a bit in comparison to the front and back but the decoration and gilt remain bright.

Your antique copy of The Vicar of Wakefield plus Poems 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 20 cm x W 14 cm, 289 pages, 0.51 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.
