The collectible hardback 1966 Emily Bronte novel entitled "Wuthering Heights" is in good condition. The gorgeously distressed and aged soft green canvas-like cover is accented with a gold colored gilt-like trim. Inside the front cover there is a library card pocket along with a card that shows that this book was checked out a total of four times. The front matter shows that this particular 1966 edition was made in Britain for J.M. Dent & Sons Limited by Aldine House. Even though Emily Bronte finished her literary masterpiece "Wuthering Heights" at only 29 years of age, she did not get to experience the magnitude of her literary achievement as she passed away nearly a year later in 1848 on the 19th day of December. Soon afterwards, her sister - Charlotte Bronte - issued a second edition of "Wuthering Heights" without the misprints included in the original 1847 text. While many subsequent printings might follow along with the edited 1850 version, this 1966 J.M. Dent & Sons Limited printing is special. This particular "Wuthering Heights" edition is very unique in that it does not follow along with the posthumous 1850 version edited by her sister - Charlotte Bronte. The front page matter shows that, "This present edition of Wuthering Heights is printed as Emily Bronte wrote it, except for a very few of Charlotte's minor alterations, which have been retained for the sake of either orthography or clarity". In addition to the Introduction by Margaret Lane, Select Bibliography, Biographical Notice of Ellis and Acton Bell, Contents, and the actual text itself, this edition includes selected poems by Emily Bronte that have been edited by Philip Henderson. After the 289 pages of the "Wuthering Heights" novel, the section of Selected Poems begins with an Index of First Lines that lists approximately 64 different poems written by Emily Bronte which are nothing short of breathtaking literary treasures in their own right.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the Chap-Stick in the photos is not included in this listing as it was used for scale purposes only.
Since this is a previous library book, there is a library card pocket in the front along with stamps inside the front and back covers and on the top edge of the pages. Also, there is a stamp along with a number written with a pen at the top of the title page. Other than this, there are no breaks, loose sections, or repair places on this collectible hardback Emily Bronte novel entitled "Wuthering Heights". There is vintage distress, age, and wear on the book. Also, there are some small spots of discoloration on the pages along with a slight amount of spine distress near the back of the book - as when a book is opened very wide to keep it laying flat. This is hardly noticeable unless looking directly into the inner crease. In addition, while every page was not inspected, there does not appear to be any additional pen, pencil, or highlighter marks inside the book.
The decorative possibilities for this collectible hardback Emily Bronte novel entitled "Wuthering Heights" are many. The display case or open collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeously distressed and aged green hardback book. Also, the she-shed, living room, or home office would welcome this collectible literary masterpiece for its compact size and engaging subject matter. In addition, the growing collection of old books would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this collectible Emily Bronte novel entitled "Wuthering Heights".

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
