Description:

A beautiful appreciation of a cleric's career, with original verse rendered with calligraphic lettering and several original artworks. 8vo. 20 by 17.5 cm. Unpaginated, 9 leaves of very heavy card stock, with calligraphic text and illustration only on the rectos. Original artwork includes a watercolored profile portrait of the distinguished Slocum, a wash watercolor of Allegheny College (two principal buildings on the Pennsylvania campus), and four different churches which Slocum had served. Not to be minimized is the ornamental borders and other embellishments that enrich almost every leaf. Among the decoration are birds, an American flag, clover, and various sinewy Rococo decoration. The Victorian Era illuminated manuscripts we typically find are English or French; we encounter American ones far less frequently. The binding is soiled and somewhat rough. Large chip at spine foot. Other surface loss along front board edge and upper corner. The tissue guards are ragged but still present. Bookseller Inventory #
