Book Condition: Good

An excellent example of a Victorian scrapbook. There is a clipped illustration of the fire at Warwick Castle so the 'publication' date is given as 1871, although of course the nature of the scrapbook means that origins are fluid. Half leather. Large. Affixed magazine etchings, coloured illustrations of events, fashion, items of personal interest in black and white and coloured, some hand-coloured. The leather corners and spine are much worn, scuffed. The boards are scuffed, marked, scratched and worn. They are resolutely steady. The contents are worn about the edges from handling, use, storage. The pages are also showing their age here and there. However, they are also utterly engaging, personal, clean and clear. Some pictures have wear, but mostly the contents are friendly, genteel, at times sweet, at times heart-warming, at times spirited. Please note the book is heavy. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
