  • Details
    The Mysteries of the Ocean.
    From the French of Arthur Mangin
    Translated, Edited, and Enlarged by W.H. Davenport Adams

    New Revised Edition. London, E. Nelson and Sons, Pasternoster Row, 1870.

    Marbled boards backed in leather, gilt titles and decoration on spine, five raised bands; marbled edges and endpapers; 130 illustrations by W. Freeman and J. Noel. A very good copy. Boards are edge worn, binding is sound; previous owner’s bookplate adhered to front paste down, hint of foxing to pages.

    Appears to be bound for a private library. A unique, gorgeous edition of this work. The perfect addition to any bookshelf; both for it’s aesthetic and wealth of knowledge!
