In good condition, here is an antique hardback leather bound copy of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Published in 1924 by John Grant, Edinburgh. With five black and white photographic illustrations of Yorkshire location settings for the novel, plus one drawing of Charlotte Bronte's dog. With a preface by Emily's sister Charlotte Bronte.

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or inscriptions. All of the black and white plates are present as called for and the frontispiece still has the original tissue guard intact. 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 fair amount of rubbing to the leather around the edges and at the corners. The sides have some mild scuffs. 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 places. Otherwise the binding is really good and strong with no cracked hinges.

A tight, square book. Your antique copy of Wuthering Heights 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, 500 pages 0.84 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.
