About this Item

4to. xxvi, 194 pp. With 20 hand-colored plates. The text pages have a light ink-blot-like foxing in many of the leaves where the text is. Most will not find this disconcerting, as since it seldom shows up in the margins, it is surely the result of a chemical reaction involving the paper composition and the ink over an extended period of time. In other words, it is to be found probably in virtually all extant copies. The plates are not only spared this, but they are immaculate, their coloring breathtaking. Bookseller Inventory # 001720

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
