Description:

Folio, 120 steel engraved plates. The author describes Joseph Mallard William Turner's education thus, "He learnt reading from his father, writing and probably little else from at his schools at Brentford and Margate, perspective (imperfectly) from T. Malton, architecture (imperfectly and classical only) from Mr. Hardwick, water-colour drawing from Dr. Monro, and perhaps some hints as to painting in oils from Sir Joshua Reynolds, in whose house he studied for awhile. Like other men of those pre-photographic days, he spent much of his time in making topographical drawings."[see: BRYAN'S DICTIONARY, Vol.V, p.214]. Plates and text very clean, pictorial covers with elaborate gilt and blind stamping, marbled endpapers, modest scuffing and rubbing to cover surfaces, firm and tight set. Orig. publisher's full brown morocco, front cover gilt lettering bright and sharp. Aeg. 2 vols. Bookseller Inventory # 20813
