Title: A New and Complete Dictionary of Arts and ...
Publisher: Isaac Peirce, Philadelphia
Publication Date: 1816
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: First American Edition.
Contemporary calf, lettering stamped in black and red leather spine labels; 3 volumes, 4to; with engraved title-pages and 137 of 139 plates (missing plates 86 and 87). Upper boards starting from Volumes I and III; a bit of scuffing along joints, spine (with gilt-stamped lettering rubbed blind), and edges of boards. (Considering the spine lettering and tender joints, binding would benefit from re-backing.) Text block browned and spotted, as usual, but contents still manage to delight, with images running the gamut -- narwhals, bridges, galvanism, birds, horses, optics, and much, much more. These large, heavy volumes may incur additional shipping charges. Bookseller Inventory # D6073
