Here we have a fabulous book Lorna Doone a Romance of Exmoor by R.D. Blackmore. This book is bound in red leather calf, and has eight black and white illustrations by Wilmut Lunt, and eight photographs by F. Frith & Co. The author’s name is written in gilt on the front cover; the title is gilt as is the design on the spine; there is minimal wear on the corner bumps and some rubbing to the spine on the top and bottom. All 640 India pages are gilt edged, and in wonderful condition for a book dating to 1910. India paper is a type of paper which from 1875 has been based on bleached hemp and rag fibres that produced a very thin, tough opaque white paper. The book measure 6 inches by 4 inches. I love old books and this is an exceptional one in its’ content, feel and size.
