Hello and thanks for checking out my auction item. I am selling a book that I inherited from an Uncle of mine. It is titled 'Old Curiosity Shop' and is one of Dickens's Works. The book was printed in London, to me it looks to be leather covered, please correct me if I am wrong. There are 3 gold embossed roses on the back spine, and a colorfull paper overlay on the front and back covers. There are some wear marks on the front and back covers where some of the color has worn off, and the book cover edges show some aging. When the book is laid flat, the paper edges have the same pretty color markings as the covers do. I took pictures to try to show off the lovely qualities of this book. There are 8 black and white illustrations, the only after market markings that I can find is on the inside page where someone wrote curtis, there is also a pencilled in 15.00. I have not tried to erase that. The book states that it is a Marliodrehene (sp?) edition.
The book was printed in London by Virtue and Co., Limited, City Road. If you have any additional info on this book, I would love to hear from you. Thanks for looking, and if you have any questions for me, please don't hesitate to ask!
