Title: The Epistles of Pliny, Volumes II & III
Publisher: Bibliophile Society
Publication Date: 1925
Binding: Hardcover
Book Condition: Near Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket
Edition: Limited Edition

These are volumes II (196 pages) and III (182 pages) of the 1925 Bibliophile Society publication, limited to 405 sets, of The Epistles of Pliny as translated by William Melmoth, and edited by Clifford H. Moore. The covers (6.5" x 9.125"), vellum spines with gold lettering and design, green paper-surfaced boards, are near fine, with surface scuffs but no notable stains, with a slight slant to Volume III's cover, but with both spines securely attached, the gilt as new, and the green unfaded. The inside is also near fine. There are a few slightly darkened areas to the inside cover spreads, apparently impressions from the adjacent binding. There are no substantial stains there or elsewhere. There are no stamps or other attachments. There are a few pencil notations to the inside cover spreads, but no other writing there or elsewhere. There are no page tears or creases. The bindings are tight, with no loose or missing pages. The gilt top page edges are bright and clean. The page faces are uniformly clean, with all the text unfaded and clearly legible, as can be seen in the photos. Bookseller Inventory # 1167
