This is one of the beautifully bound, Victorian volumes, bound in lovely navy, full calf leather. It has gold tooling on the spine , front, and back, and is one of the prize edition volumes. This was a prize given from Oxford University Extension Lectures, and it was published in London, by Macmillan and company, in 1899. The volume is in very good shape, and it includes marbled frontispiece and endspiece, and marbled page tips. It measures 7 and 1/ 2 inches North to South, 5 inches East to West, and is 1 and 1/4 inches thick. These bindings are such a work of art; there is nothing available that is new that is this nice.
