Cassell, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No, Later
DAY, SAMUEL PHILLIPS. Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress in Words of One Syllable, New York et al.: Cassell & Co., n.d. (circa 1884). 12mo, pp. 222, illustrated boards, frontis plus 7 illustrated plates, artist unidentified, 2 plates hand-colored. According to Gumuchian 969, the first edition came out around 1860, also from Cassell, also with 8 plates, so the plates here are likely the same as the originals, but most are black and white instead of the original Kronheim color. I am dating this copy circa 1884 because the illustrations on the boards are copyrighted 1884. Day's text is not entirely words of one syllable, as he has left the proper names as Bunyan wrote them. Condition of this book: Boards worn at extremities with some chipping to the illustration. Leaves clean with toning at margins, images fine, title page weakly attached. Overall good. Size: 12mo. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Britain/UK; 19th century; Children. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request.
