Mechliniae: H. Dessain successor P.J. Hanicq, 1860. Leather. 340p. Ex-library. A hardcover book bound in blind-stamped full black leather. Faint call number on spine. Edges and surfaces dotted with rub marks and nicks. Back cover just barely starting to crack off at the bottom, but is still holding securely enough for normal handling. Card pocket residue on rear endpapers. Stamps and other library markings on blank endpapers, half title page, and full title page; the stamp on the full title page has been blotted out with correction fluid. Otherwise, text clean and binding secure. Overall, very nice condition for its age and considering its ex-library status. Item #166144
