The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Signed Volume 7

Description
The volume has the original publishers paper cover to the spine. The leather spine, rear end-pages and both the boards are missing (see CCWSH 0931a for details of the boards). Pasted onto the top corner of the title page are 2 small white labels "From the Library of Kenneth Monkman at Shandy Hall" with underneath "Property of the L S Trust, 1986". The top right corner of the title page has been removed as it has a previous owners signature. Written underneath this are bibliographic notes in both pencil and red crayon relating to the volume. Stamped is the circular stamp with "The Laurence Sterne Trust Shandy Hall" and inside "The Kenneth Monkman Collection". The top of page 1 has been torn out with the signature of Laurence Sterne.
