This is a very unusual little volume. The novel is 'Waverly', the first of the great Sir Walter Scott 'Waverly Novels' that include such classics as 'Ivanhoe'. What is particularly interesting in this edition is that it was published to commemorate the coronation of his Majesty King George V. The book was published in 1911 and is bound in royal purple cloth. The front board is inscribed in gilt and dated. There is blindstamping to the spine as well as a faded gilt title of 'Waverly'. The book is holding together well with a bit of toning to the textblock. There is a monochrome frontispiece opposite the title page. The volume is currently in a mylar wrapper to protect it. An interesting volume. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

Price = 150.00 USD
