How it works

Register

A most unusual book in that it comprises three titles, all bound professionally into one volume. The half leather over marbled boards binding would appear to go back to about 1847, and to have been performed by John Snow.

MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF THE REV. JOHN WILLIAMS, MISSIONARY TO POLYNESIA by Rev. John Williams - Dated 1846

MISSIONARY LABOURS AND SCENES IN SOUTHERN AFRICA by Robert Moffet - Dated 1846

A NARRATIVE OF MISSIONARY ENTERPRISES IN THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS by Rev. John Williams - Dated 1847

All three books are in VG condition with no foxing. Numerous woodcut engravings, two fold out maps; one of Africa and the other of the South Seas. Though the leather is showing its 167 years of age with a few mandatory scars and bumps, it has a beautiful polished patina and is still holding up remarkably well. Internally clean and tight in the bindings.
