Saturn and Its System by Richard A. Proctor.

1865 1st edition of Proctor's famous work on Saturn. Percival Lowell once owned this copy. It was a Christmas gift from his mother in 1872. The book was in poor condition when I purchased it. The rear hinge was broken and the spine was falling off. I sent the book to Amanda Buck for restoration work. The following images show the book before and after the restoration work.
