A fantastic antique book. This is the 20th Edition of the famous Pears' shilling cyclopaedia book. With printed red cloth cover and illustrated. Inside it has been hand stamped with 'Per pre Webster & Bullock' and hand written 'Oct 1916'. This copy bears the motif for King George V as Pears has a Royal appointment.A well loved copy of a popular book. Perfect for a collector or to read and enjoy.


Bumped corners and split spine. Foxing to some pages. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
