The Ideal Home
Place Published: London
Publisher: George Routledge & Sons
Binding: One-Quarter Leather
Book Id: 050734
Clean, bright pages except for a small water stain at the bottom edge of the title page and a very few, scattered, light instances of foxing; no owners' marks. Binding is rather relaxed, but square and secure. The boards turn inward at the corners and show spots of finish wear front and back, some drip spotting and a few tiny white specks, and gentle shelf wear along the edges; the spine has vertical surface creases, a chip above the spine heel, a short closed tear at the spine head, and modest wear at the ends, but is overall sound, the gilt titles still bright. 976pp. w/index; illustrated.
