Which were the most popular books released in the last weeks ?
Very good copy in the original gilt-blocked, blind-bordered cloth. Slightest suggestion only of dust-dulling to the panel edges. Spine band somewhat scuffed and dust-dulled. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong.
Leopold is delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public.
This book was converted from its physical edition to the digital format by a community of volunteers. You may find it for free on the web.
