Title: The Dialogues of Plato, 1892. Volumes 1-2
Author: B. Jowett
Publisher: Oxford, The Clarendon Press
Two late 19th century volumes of the Dialogues of Plato, as translated by B. Jowett. These are volumes 1-2 of 5.
These volumes have been finely bound in full leather, with gilt tooling to the spines and covers, and the prize binding crest of Bristol Grammar School to the front covers.
Two finely bound volumes in octavo, XXXVII+594, 576 pages
On note of condition, these volumes are in good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the bindings, notably to the hinges, with a small crack to the front hinge of volume 1. Two of the titles to the spines have fallen off, though one is still present for re-attachment. There is virtually no foxing or staining throughout, with slight toning to the page edges.
