Dark green 3/4-leather, gilt accents, five raised bands, title label in burgundy and gilt, textured dark green cloth, marbled endpapers and text block edges. A once-elegant custom binding of the period, rather compromised by ex-library status but fundamentally sound. Both joints are rubbed, with leather separated along portions of seams, but binding remains firm. Leather rubbed at corners, with underboards exposed at bottom, a bit chipped at head of spine. Title label is chipped with small area of loss (no lettering affected), gilt still mostly intact on bands. Typically marked/stamped interior. viii,461,[x],284 pp. Two volumes bound as one, London social reform, the 2nd work dated 1869 [New Edition, revised and enlarged, the 1st issue dating to 1858]. Interior slightly toned but nicely intact, with lovely marbled edges. Title pg. of 2nd volume shows news clipping from May 1878 tipped in. Each individual work quite scarce, this copy virtually unique.
