The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Volume 3. The Second Edition

Description
The volume is fully bound in speckled leather covered boards with red mottling to the edges of the text block. Pasted onto the centre of the front paste-down is a small white label with "July 1993 the Gift of Pippa Corner". Written above this in ink was a previous owners signature which has off-set onto the front free end-page. This signature has been removed by scratching the top layer of the page off and is now illegible. Stamped underneath these is the circular stamp with "The Laurence Sterne Trust Shandy Hall" and inside "The Kenneth Monkman Collection".
