Marlborough: His Life and Times

Harrap, London, (1939), The Limited Presentation edition, 4 volumes, 1939. Not to be confused with signed limited edition. This is a remainder binding done in 1939 with left over sheets from the first edition. Vol. I was reprinted for this edition, but vols III & IV appear to be first editions. This set was bound in a deep purple cloth, blocked in silver. Unfortunately, the dyes proved extremely sensitive to light, and virtually all, even those with jackets, have faded, often severely. This edition is of interest to completists, but also offers a low cost opportunity to have the original 4 volume work. Books are all clean and tight with no spots on edges. Spines good colour, but small areas of sunning where dj had gaps. Vol. I has a clipping stuck on the half title page, and some repairs to the front hinge. Vols 2-4 no names or markings. Dustjackets are correct, tanned on spines, and losses at spine ends. (A40ad). Item #50122

Price: $300.00
