Vintage Book - "Discourses of Epictetus" Vol. 2 - Translated By George Long - 1893

Sweet copy of George Long's translation of The Discourses of Epictetus, Volume Two. Published in New York by Scott-Thaw. Copyright 1893 ( though clearly that's when this volume was actually printed. It appears to be more like sometime in the 1900s. No actual printing date for this edition is given). This book is marvelous due to the unusual way its pages are bound. The pages were printed several to one sheet of paper then folded into position. The top edge of the pages were not ever completely cut so many are still together at the top. Its really a fascinating view of an older way of printing books. The pages edges are also all deckled. And the paper is a fine linen. I adore this little book!

Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
