Title: The Principals of Moral and Political Philosophy, 1809, Re-purposed as a book safe
Author: William Paley
Publisher: J. Faulder, London
A hollowed out book safe, using a 19th century copy of Paley's Principals of Moral and Political Philosophy.
This book safe was likely re-purposed a fair amount of time ago, as the papers covering the hole are the type of marbled endpaper you'd typically see in 19th or early 20th century texts.
On note of condition, the book safe is in fair shape. There is some minor wear on the boards, more notably at the corners. The joints are worn down, though the binding holds firmly.
