In very good condition here is a lovely antique, leather bound, illustrated copy of Villette by Charlotte Bronte. Published in 1922 by JM Dent & Sons, London. With twelve superb colour plates by Edmund Dulac. In a fine leather binding. Many of these pages are still un-cut along the edges (see photos). This indicates the book will have never been read. I have left the pages un-cut so the new owner can experience the joy of opening them. They can be opened with a sharp knife or letter opener.

Dent & Sons produced six novels in their "Novels of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte" series of which this was number three. Hence the "3" on the spine. 

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or other markings of previous ownership. Has some spotting to the endpapers and closed outside edges. Opens onto marbled endpapers. All twelve colour plates are present and in super condition. The top edge is shiny gilt. 

In a fine blue leather binding with gilt trim and blue cloth covered boards. All in top order - clean and smart. The spine has five raised bands with ornate gilt decoration in the compartments and red Moroccan leather title and author plates. The leather on the outer spine having faded a little in comparison to the sides. With a few very faint scuffs.

Your vintage copy of Charlotte Bronte's Villette will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with message to the parcel.

H 19.5 cm x W 13.5 cm, 462 pages, 0.55 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 and sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
