SUMMER FAIR HIGHLIGHT Mark Richardson MR Books

Mark Richardson of MR Books will be bringing to the Summer Fair: Railway Machinery -A Treatise on the Mechanical Engineering of Railways: Embracing The Principles and Construction of Rolling and Fixed Plant by Daniel Kinnear Clark, Blackie and Son, 1855. Recently rebound in Leather. It is highly unusual to see both volumes of this sought after title. Price £2,600.Full Description:  This is a beautiful two volume set of this highly sort after title. Quarter leather binding having evidently been recently rebound (tan leather corners and spine with brown cloth.) Two inscriptions: one on title page of volume 1 neatly in top RH corner; the other a 1992 gift inscription on front end paper. Foxing to prelims and a little throughout. Small Institute of Transport Library Stamp at foot of Vol. 1 title page dated 1854. No further evidence of library markings in either volume. Volume two is more heavily foxed on some plates throughout probably due to the paper stock. Despite these few flaws these are a wonderful collectable set of this rare masterpiece. Check the Summer Fair Exhibitors page later this week for Mark’s stand number.
