What a beauty this one is. I have waited nearly a year to list it because I thought I'd keep it. Alas, I have kept several and need to sell a few, so I am listing it reluctantly. It is a full leather volume of Boswell's London Journal, 1762-1763. It was published in London in 1950, and I truly did not know that they were binding books as beautifully as this as late as the 50's . This is one of the signed bindings by Zachnsdorf. There is gold tooling on the front, back , and spine, the pages are gilded, and the fronts and ends pieces are marbled. I would thoroughly enjoy reading about living in London at this time. As Johnson said (and Boswell wrote the famous biography of him), "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of Life." The same still goes for woman! I digress; this volume measures 9 and 1/2 inches North to South, 6 and 1/2 inches East to West, and is 1 inch and 1/2 thick. This book would be a great addition to any library!
