Exceptionally rare 19th century dustjacket (1892)

Austin Dobson

The Ballad of Beau Brocade and other poems of the XVIIIth Century

Published: London Kegan Paul Trench Trubner & Co.

Date: 1892

original dust jacket now shows edge and corner wear with rubbing and some marginal loss as shown in the photos - some age toning / evidence of handling and use - sometime repaired with archival tape [most likely to prevent loss] to the back of jacket at the front outer hinge - some old evidence of the bottom corner of the rear board being wet? with some transference of colour to the corner of the jacket - the jacket is extremely fragile - book is clean fresh and tight - some uneven age toning to the endpapers - contents are fresh clean and tight with some light marginal foxing
