Book Description

Rare. FFEP has inscription excised but signature of (Rev) Thomas S Polehampton and date (Feb 1860) remains. The title page lists editors as Rev Edward Polehampton and Rev Thomas Stedman Polehampton but the first is deleted by a pencil line. Throughout there are occasional pencil annotations. It is postulated that this is a copy reviewed by Rev Thomas S Polehampton. A rear blank has hand-written text (appears to be Thomas Polehampton) describing a monument to Henry Stedman Polehampton. Decorated leather boards with gilt lettering to spine. All edges gilt. Boards are generally in good order, just a little shelfwear. Corners are bumped, edges are worn. Spine has 5 raised bands and heavy gilt decoration. Textblock is a little foxed, mostly to the early/late pages. Pagination: xii, 440 pp. Additional photos are available upon request. When securely packed this item will weigh in the region of 671g. (YBP Ref: 033391:15(7a))
