Isle of Wight County Press - Original c1895 (52 x Bound Victorian Editions)
This is probably the only opportunity you will have of obtaining these Original Victorian Editions of 'The Isle of Wight County Press' from the year 1895.
The Set comprising 52 Consecutive Editions covering the entire year of 1895 come bound in Two Very Large (Broadsheet) Volumes.
Externally both volumn's are showing heavy wear to the boards and spine with one front board detached and the other volumn in slightly better condition. Both would greatly benefit from rebinding and this is reflected in the price, which equates to less than £10 per edition.
Internally both Volumn's are Near Pristine, although the edition from Nov 30th 1895 has Foxing throughout and must have been bound in this condition as all others are unaffected.
There are 52 Full Editions of the Newspapers, as well as Additional News Supplements. There are also interesting inserts including the 1895 Almanac, whicdh is a Double Broadside Pullout, which is in Immaculate Condition, as well as a Full Page Electoral Advertisement.
These are priceless to anyone interested in the Local History of the Isle of Wight and are virtually Unobtainable on the open market. I am selling them intact as I cannot bring myself to break up the contents, as they would be worth a great deal more divided.
