2 A Cylopaedia of Nature Teachings: Being a Selection of Facts, Observations, Suggestions, Illustrations, Examples, and Illustrative Hints Taken from All Departments of Inanimate Nature. Various.
Elliot Stock. 1892 Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 
A very good 552 page hardback book without inscriptions or other marks. Clean and tight inside, covers generally rubbed mildly overall, with rather more rub to corners. Looks like a book which has worn more by shelfwear than use. A strange book, something of the nature of a general knowledge encyclopedia with all the discussions heavily biassed with a religious (Christian) dimension. No DJ.

A good 1562 page hardback book with owner's name on front endpaper, otherwise unmarked.

Commonly known as "The Esbach", this is an incredible source of everything from Abamperes to Zyglo inspection!
