The Works of Edmund Spenser with observations on his Life and Writings.
Published 1840 by Walter Spiers.
This book has a brand new binding of green bookcloth and gold fleur-de-lis decorated paper in a 1/2 bound style.
The spine is lettered in gold and it has been given complimentary coloured endbands and ribbon.
Internally the book has considerable foxing to its title page, frontispiece and last page. The rest of the pages are intermittently spotted else in good condition.
Page edges are rough cut and there are a few pencil marks in the text.
A previous owners inscription taken from the original binding has been fixed onto the front endpaper to maintain the books history.
