About this Item

viii, 200 p., 37 plates: drawings, plans; 31 cm. Remains of original brown cloth spine; brown paper over boards with engraved label on front board. Armorial bookplate on front fixed endpaper of Ed. Dixon; Dixon's name is crossed out on the bookplate and at the head of the title page. Written below on the bookplate is "Fosters & ORily Feb. '36"; the same names are on the title page. Below the bookplate on the front fixed endpaper are subsequent owners: Waldo G. Morse Jan. 1889; Dudley Mixer Morris 1913; Edna G. Morris 1928; Athenaeum of Philadelphia 1987. Small bookplate of Athenaeum of Philadelphia at head of front fixed endpaper. Waldo G. Morse was an attorney in New York City in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Dudley Mixer Morris was secretary and treasurer of the Hawthorne Manufacturing Company. He and his wife, Edna Grippen Morris, in 1915 built a mansion in Bridgeport, Conn. It is an excellent example of neo-Tudor residential architecture, perhaps inspired by this book. As Wistaria Hall, it served as a residence for female students at the University of Bridgeport for many years. In Fair Condition: spine is gone and boards are detached; pp. i-viii are detached as a unit; textblock is otherwise solid; shadows from some plates on facing text; faint foxing on a few leaves; otherwise text and plates are clean and bright.
