RUSKIN'S SESAME AND LILLIES AND KING OF THE GOLDEN RIVER by John Ruskin.  Edited with notes and an introduction by Herbert Bates.  Published by The MacMillan Company in 1910, part of MacMillan's 'Pocket Series of English Classics'.

A small 224-page hardback, with index at the rear.  The book has green cloth boards, with blue lettering on the front and a blue illustration on front.  Black and white plate of the author's portrait as frontispiece.

The book has handwritten inscriptions on the endpapers.  The front has the names of two previous owners and "Class A (1912-14)".  The rear has the name and address of the original owner.  Some pages have also been annotated in the margins, with some underlining of text.

Please see the photographs provided for full publication details and a list of contents.  

A charming vintage book!


The book is in an acceptable vintage condition.  Pages have lightly tanned but have no foxing.  Some pages have been written on, with some annotation in the margins and/or underlining of text (41 pages are marked in total).  Some page corners have small folds. Bottom corners of p.163/4 and 187/8 have been torn.  Endpapers have been written on, as detailed above.    

Covers are in a stable condition, but corners and edges have been rubbed.  The spine edges have been rubbed.  Some small discoloured marks on the cloth.  The rear board has a crease down the middle. 

The front hinge has weakened, as shown in the photographs, but pages remain tightly bound. 

Please see the photographs provided for a fuller description of the item condition.  

We will be happy to help if you have any other questions about this item.  Thanks for looking.
