The Beauties of the Court of King Charles the Second.
London: Henry Colburn, 1833. Full morocco, 15 inches tall. A spectacular and beautiful full morocco binding by Wright with wide gilt raised bands and superb gilt tooling to the panels and boards. Git dentelles and all edges. With 21 engraved plates of the Beauties of the day. Some offsetting. There has been a damp stain to a small section of the foredge affecting the first 40 pages. This extends in a short distance, far away from any text or illustrations. Otherwise the text is clean and the binding is in fine condition. A magnificent early Victorian binding.
