[WALPOLE, Horace] MURALTO, Onuphrio.
Jeffery's Edition of the Castle of Otranto, A Gothic Story. Translated by WILLIAM MARSHALL, Gent. from the Original Italian of Onuphrio Muralto, Canon of the Church of St. Nicholas at Otranto.

Description:
pp. xvi, 152. 5 engraved plates, hand-coloured and with gilt roll around the illustration, LACKING frontispiece and 1 plate. Original morocco-backed boards, the binding worn and shabby, the book itself in very poor condition, some leaves dusty and most grubby at the lower corners from handling, a couple torn and loose though without lext loss, old and faded damp marking throughout; the condition is it's history, having been avidly read and re-read. It is too good a book to send to landfill or the pulpers, so offered at a nominal price to save it from destruction.
