Published by Lawrence Gilbertson, Hopetoun Street, Bathgate. First Edition(NAP), 1881. Xi and 386 pages. Tipped-in photographic frontispiece portrait. This book is an interesting mix of biography, literary analysis, and poetry. Take the time to zoom in and read the two page preface. The first chapter is all about Robert Burns, His Birth, His Education, As a Flaxdresser, As a Farmer, As an Exciseman, His Moral Character, As a Poet-His Poetic Career, The Poverty of Poets, His Popularity, His Position, Comparison with Byron, His Ideal. Next up James Hogg, then Minor Peasant Poets.and much, much more. Very Good. This book is very well bound. As you can see from the photos the gilt design on the front cover is very bright and the gilt lettering on the spine is quite visible. You can also see the strong red color on the back and front despite soiling from handling. The spine is clearly a little darkened. Look at the spine ends. Pretty darn good. And the corners are better than you might expect, with only the smallest spots of rub-through. There is a tiny loss of cloth at the edge of the spine visible in the First photo of the front cover. The pages have no writing or underlining. A few corners had been turned down leaving mild creases. There are occasional spots of soiling but in the main the pages are very, very clean. Many of the pages aren't totally flat--they have a little wave in the middle. And the last end paper has discoloration (penciling??) at the top edge. Please examine all the photos. Zoom in. It is possible to get this book at a lower price. That is if you don't mind that it's a library book or a repaired book. From my searches this is the ONLY copy for sale that is neither. With that in mind, I think it is generously priced. N° de ref. de la librería 000127

Descripción de la librería

Many of the books I will be selling can accurately be described as ranging from somewhat rare to very rare. In some cases there won't be another copy for sale anywhere on the Internet. There doesn't seem much point, for you or me, in offering something that so many others are already offering. Subject matter will range very widely, creating the possibility for people with very different interests to find something that excites them. As regards pricing, my primary goal is to sell the book. Most often I would expect my book to be the least expensive option on the Internet taking into account an appropriate comparison(what is the condition, is the dust jacket present, is the book signed, is it a first printing, etc.). More important than selling the book I want to make sure that you know, as much as is possible, exactly what you are getting. To that end, you'll notice that my descriptions of condition tend to be lengthy, and that there will always be photographs to help you draw your own conclusions. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about a given book. As regards international shipping, the first class or standard rates I charge are based on a package weight between 2 and 3 pounds. If the book is on the thin side there is a possibility that I can securely pack it up under 2 pounds in weight. If so, the shipping price will drop between $9 to $11. I think, for example, Europe drops to $24.00 and Canada to $15.00. You can contact me before purchasing a book for an estimate on the shipping cost. If you buy the book and it weighs in below 2 pounds you'll get a Reduced Shipping message and amount with the invoice and you'll see the lowered final cost before you make your payment. For international shipping I charge you what I am charged.
