Description
Titled - Harold by Lord Lytton



Although the outside of this book seems homely and plain, the original marble display paper on the inside is simply beautiful. Overall the book cover is in good condition, with little signs of damage. The coloured leather and patterned paper on the front and back covers are also in good condition. The original marble paper is a two tone green colour scheme, with bold gold mixed in as well. The marble paper does have some signs of damage, and should not be excessively bent.



13cm (W) x 19cm (L) x 2.5cm (D)



Approximately 200 blank pages of recycled grass paper, cut to size and bound by hand. The paper has not been treated with any harsh chemicals or harmful bleaches. A starch solution has been added during the recycling process to ensure ink does not run on the paper. The spine of the book has been reinforced with nontoxic tacky glue for flexible durability.



You don't see many books like these anymore, typically because they've fallen out of fashion, or have been placed amongst library collections. These books were more popular during the early 1900s, and were originally made by hand; the paper was cut and bound by hand, and adorned with treated leather and marbled paper. These books were made to last, and to upcycle them in our day and age is testament to that. I found a box of these books about to thrown found out and scrapped. Many of them missing display paper or a bulk of their original texts (most people now scavenge the bulk of paper and reupholster them in modern faux leather covers). I managed to save what books I could.



Note - These are originally old books, with existing damage to the hardback covers and marbled display paper. I would not recommend these books for adventurous writing due to the fragile paper and spine. They are better suited for 'static writing'. Excessive or heavy handling could cause further damage, especially to the brittle marble paper. Also please bare in mind that these books are not as flexible as modern books and therefore should not be bent in excessive fashion."
