Book Title: 

A General Catalogue of Books, Offered At To The Public At The Affixed Prices By Bernard Quaritch

London, Bernard Quaritch, 1880

22 x 14.5 cm, 2,395 pages. The Sion Library copy, with a single ink stamp applied to the back of the title page. Clean internally, but the back cover detached and with it the last few pages, a couple of pages before these rather loose. Two gatherings standing rather proud when the book is closed. The binding of this extremely thick book (about 16cm) is rather dry and tight, so that the book +requires careful handling.

Bound with red leather spine and corners and grained red paper covering the boards, the title etc. in gilt on the spine. The binding rubbed, with loss of surface to the leather and two round paper labels on the spine, some fraying on the corners and the base of the spine.

An extremely heavy book; postage at cost.
