Description:

Printed and bound in Great Britain. Tan quarter buckram binding, with gilt-stamped lettering on a green leather label to the spine. Boards in an olive drab Japan paper. 15.25 x 10 inches. Moderately bumped spine tail, with fairly sharp if abraded corners. All in all a very clean binding. Hinges a little tender but the text block still securely bound in. Fore- and bottom edges deckled to a handsome effect. With xiii and 261 numbered pages, with copious indexes of titles and artist, and with 43 plates, 18 of which are full-color, full-page plates. Bookplate of Herbert McLean Evans at bottom of front pastedown and at the top his intitals in soft pencil. A very clean copy, and rather tight. Respectfully read. The plain paper dust jacket is present but is very worn and age-faded and has been crudely reinforced with various types of mending tape. The DJ with dark green lettering to the front and to the spine. A Good Plus copy in a Fair DJ. From the private library of Herbert McLean Evans. Evans [1882-1971] was a highly regarded U.S. anatomist and embryologist. He was an ardent collector of rare books and of Japanese ukiyo-e prints. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall.
