Here is an absolutely beautiful copy of The Princess by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Published in 1860 by Edward Moxon & Co., London. With twenty-six engraved illustrations (see photos).

Inside the pages are tightly bound. The main condition point to note with this copy is heavy spotting to the early pages and then spotting sporadically through the text, heavy in a couple of places. Otherwise this copy has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership. Cracks open at the hinge in a couple of places to reveal webbing, but not effecting the binding at all, which is good and strong. All edges are gilt, the top edge having dulled a bit in comparison to the bright and shiny fore-edge.

Striking and beautifully ornate cloth covered boards have bevelled edges, intricate gilt decoration to the front, back and spine. The boards have a decorative inset panel in the centre with a romantic couple. All in good order. There is a little rubbing to the gilt decoration in places. With slight rubbing to the cloth at the corners and more so to the spine ends where there is a little fraying a some small splits to the cloth. The decoration on the spine has rubbed a bit more than on the boards but can still be discerned.
