In good condition, here is a beautifully bound antique copy of The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens. Undated, but research shows it would have been published around 1885 by Chapman & Hall, London. With seventy-five black and white illustrations. In a fine green leather binding.

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound with no writing or inscriptions. Has decorative endpapers (see photos). The frontispiece illustration still has the original tissue guard in place which is also clean and bright. Gilt-edged along the top, with spotting to the outside fore-edge (see photos).

In a green leather binding with green cloth sides. The boards are in super condition, clean and smart with just some rubbing to the edges of the leather corner pieces. The attractive spine has five raised bands with gilt decoration in the compartments and Moroccan leather title plates. Has some rubbing away of the green on some of the raised bands and at the head of the spine. With some slight cracking to the leather at the joints at the spine ends. Otherwise the gilt is shiny bright and this is an eye-catching edition.

Your antique copy of The Old Curiosity Shop 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 if desired.

H 21 cm x W 14 cm, 460 pages, 0.77 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 packaging please add a note to the order.
