[Wright, Anne]

The Observing Eye; or, Letters to Children on the Three Lowest Divisions of Animal Life. The Radiated, Articulated, & Molluscous. Sixth Edition

Jarrold and Sons, London. 1859, x, 310p., publisher's menu; small hardbound in bevelled 6.5x4 inch royal-blue boards gilt. Casing is in poor shape with seriously cracked hinges, a nearly-detached spine panel that has half-inch losses both head and tail, spine titling dirty and dim. Gilt cover devices and title are still bright, it and rear cover could become part of a restoration, likewise the original brown endsheets, but not (we think) the spine. Textblock has fared better; the guarded color-litho frontis is about fine, and all illustrations are present. Text edges are badly dust-soiled and a few signatures are slightly started, with a crack down to cords at 144/5. Reading copy.
