    Volume of Bound Issues of Illustrated Catholic Missions. London: J. Donovan. Includes Volume I, issues number 1-12, May, 1886 through April, 1887; Volume II, issues 12-24, May, 1887 through April, 1888; Volume III, issues 25-36, May, 1888 through April, 1889; and Volume IV, issues 37-48, May, 1889 through April, 1890.

     

    Contemporary quarter leather binding and buckram over boards. Significant wear to the boards and spine and moderate scattered soiling. Contents toned with scattered torn and tatty pages. Overall sound and in good condition.

     

    The issues are illustrated with scenes from the hinterlands of the world, wherever Catholic missionaries propagated the faith. Many excellent stories concerning indigenous animals, customs and lifestyle of the local people. No doubt fascinating, as well as appalling reading viewed with modern sensibilities.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
