Does anyone here have any interest in a reading copy of the first British edition of the Tarot of the Bohemians (Chapman & Hall, 1892)?

The binding is in poor condition - the spine has pretty much come away & the front cover is partly detached. All pages & plates are present & correct, although p. xiii is loose. There is some heavy foxing to the paper, particularly on the earlier pages. Oh, & it has a faint lingering smell of ciggies!

Better copies of this book go for a lot of money, but this would really be a rebinding project, or a breaker for someone who wanted to reproduce the illustrations.

I feel that I've probably put everyone off the book by now, but I'm trying to give an accurate impression of it!

If anyone is actually interested in either buying the book or offering a swap for it (I'm always interested in TdM's, Etteilla & Wirth-type decks) please pm me!
