The poetic works of Alexander Pope book with nicely detailed illustrations throughout During our research we leaned that these particular decorative binding were used so that the book would be easily recognizable in one's library.
This is a household edition as seen on the front cover. The cover itself is a maroon cloth blocked in gold and black on front and spine, with beveled boards. We find Christmas 1886 inscribed on font-piece from a dear friend. Published by Bellford, Clarke & Co.
The book is in overall good condition. There is some wear to the hard cover as shown and some foxing to the pages. We find no missing pages nor spots or stains on the interior. This was a treasured gift.
