The Play Book of Science - John Pepper ca 1866

The Play Book of Science, originally The Boy's Play Book of Science. Revised Edition. George Routledge and Sons, London. Hardcover. Brown cloth with stamped decorations plus gilt illustrations and lettering on front and spine; all edges gilt. pp vii, 440. 470 engravings. I believe it is from 1866, there is no date, but that is the year this cover appeared.

In GOOD condition: front board clean, back board has some minor wear, some wear to cloth at top corners and spine ends, gilt bright. Inner hinges are split, but text block is securely held. Minor foxing on first few pages. Bookseller's penciled price and number, one pencil squiggle on introduction page and one on last page, no other annotations. Still an attractive book and a wonderful addition to any collection.
