Published by J Nisbet & Co Ltd circa 1895. This very collectable and interestingly decorated hardback, gilt edged edition, is in all the original binding and includes a number of E. Evans illustrations. This book is in a good condition for its age with virtually no bumps on the corners the spine has some rubbing to the base and the pages are slightly dulled. All the pages are well secured to the spine with only some slight separation to the front inner leaf. A real joy to hold and own. It is inscribed on the inner leaf as a Sunday School prize and dated 1899.
The perfect gift for any book lover and a rare opportunity to purchase a 110 year old book that would grace any bookcase and start or build a collection.
