This is the Bulwer & Co., F. & W. Nicol and R. Evans 1802 publication of William Gifford's translation into English of The Satires of Decimus Junius Juvenalis, with notes and illustrations (486 pages). The full calf cover (app. 10.875" x 8.75"), with gilt lettering and decoration (red backing in title square), is in good overall condition, with a number of scuffs but no prominent stains, with slight play at the hinges but with the cover reasonably secure, with a straight spine and no notable fade to the gilt. The front inside cover has the bookplate of Robert Henry Clive (Earl of Powis?) and a smaller one for Harold Gordon, whose name appears, in pencil, on two other pages. There are no other stamps or attachments. There are several pencil notes, but no ink marks. The engraved portrait of Gifford is unfaded and clean. That spread, the frontispiece and title page, is extensively foxed. There is recurring foxing in the book, most of which is light. Most pages have little or no foxing. The red-dyed page edges are darker at the top, but with no stains of note. The binding is secure, with no loose or missing pages. There are no notable page tears or creases. The addendum slip is present, at the end of the preliminary sections. The above photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions.
