Velazques and His Works by William Stirling
1855. 256 pages. No dust jacket. Rebound in orange cloth with gilt text to spine, some of which is a little faded. Pages are slightly tanned with some rough cut edges, light cracking to hinges exposing binding thread. Heavier crack to gutters at page 66-67, exposing binding and creasing pages at margins. Moderate foxing towards both front and rear ends of book, moderate damp staining to title and preface. Light creasing to guttering throughout, slight tearing to tanned tissue guard at frontis. Binding is firm with moderate corner bumping and staining to the soiled boards. Spine is tanned with moderate shelf wear and splitting to edges and joints. Bubbling to cloth, particularly to front.
