Speckled calf, rubbed mainly to edges and corners. All boards firmly attached. Spines' binding sound but labelling and decoration in poor condition with almost all lost, and a few volumes with poor scraps of labels still barely attached.

(Maurice Francis Headlam, C.B., C.M.G., 1873-1956, British civil servant and author of fishing and hunting books). Early owner's name (S Barton) in ink to flyleaves, neatly written in a small hand. Textblock in all volumes clean and bright, with only the lightest age-toning. Contents Very Good but spines Poor. Overall Good. Heavy books, requiring eye-watering and prohibitive amounts of extra postage overseas. Too heavy for some territories except by very expensive Parcel Force. Courier in UK. We reduce the default shipping charge for lighter books or use it for a tracked service if books are expensive or uncommon. We pack books securely in boxes, or corrugated card or cardboard, and protect corners with bubble-wrap. Codice inventario libreria
