About This Item

Newcastle & London: The Author& Longmans, 1821. Cloth. Good/No Jacket. Bewick, Thomas. Some wear to the brown, cloth boards but this book has been professionally re-backed retaining the original boards and much of the original spine, including the black and gilt spine label. The original flyleaves have also been retained and bear an earlier owner's hand-written note, dated 1846, stating that "This single volume bought at Old Curiosity Shop" A 4cm strip has been cut from pp161-2 . Some foxing throughout but all pages are tight.

I specialise in used books covering all aspects of Northumberland, North East England and the Scottish Borders and the associated fields of railways and mining. I also hold books on prehistoric art and titles on field sports in the 19th and 20th centuries. As I sell on commission, I often have a wide range of uncommon titles on other subjects.
