1840 1st ed Bartlett AMERICAN SCENERY / 53 Steel Engraving Plates AMERICANA Extremely Important Book / comp@$17,500 First Edition of this classic American view book illustrated with steel-engraved plates by William H. Bartlett. Includes a total of 53 nineteenth-century views of America, each plate in fine impressions with all the tissue guards intact. This was an extremely influential book. William Bartlett (1809-1854) produced prints that were widely copied during the first half of the nineteenth century (even onto Staffordshire china). The plates and text in this set are generally free from foxing which almost invariably mars all copies this work. In 1835 Bartlett travelled from England to America where he made drawings of American towns, buildings, and scenery destined for this successful publication. Today the beauty and historical accuracy of his steel-engravings are still much acclaimed. - I find this extremely rare 1st edition selling elsewhere (with both volumes) for $17,500!
