Antique Book: "Lady Clare" Alfred Tennyson [c.1884] Illustrated poetry book
Published circa 1884 by Porter and Coates.
8" tall, cloth wrapped boards, decorated front board, gilt on all edges of text block, all pages are glossy, illustrated on each right hand page, not paginated.
This is a "good plus" or better antique book with a solid spine, the front hinge is somewhat cracked, the back is intact, no loose, torn or folded pages. No writing or name plates, some foxing on end papers. The board corners are bumped with some wear, but not worn through the cloth. The gilt on the text block is bright and uniform, not rubbed. Spine head and tail are worn with some loss to the cloth. General surface wear.
Not perfect, but still quite pleasant overall.
