About this Item

Folio-sized. 34.5 by 28 cm. 48 hand-colored plates, 44 of which are views, four, costume. Pagination is separate for each of the schools: vi (including list of subscribers), 56, 72, 40, 32, 43, 34, 34, 27, 22, [1] pp. The greatest number of plates are devoted to Eton and Winchester, which get ten each, with the other schools genreally receiving five each. The plates capture the architectural glory of these institutions, as well as the romance that had already gathered around them, with nary an acknowledgment of the underside of their strict and spartan regime. Scattered foxing, heavy at times, but most leaves and plates are in fact clean. Sometimes heavy offsetting from the plates onto the facing pages. Full contemporary calf with gothic architectural motive and border decoration blindstamped. Rebacking, with original spine preserved and laid on. Some small chips and scuffs to the leather. Notwithstanding its wear, it remains decidedly handsome. Bookseller Inventory # 003773

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.
