About this Item

Book. 4to - over 9¾. Two volumes, xxiv + 408 pp., viii + 396, 44 full page aquatints in all. 3/4 modern calf binding. These two volumes by Alexander Campbell are part of the great travel illustrated plate book tradition that reached its pinnacle in the early nineteenth century before the advent of steel engravings, which made illustrations more readily available but lacked the warmth, beauty and artisanship that characterized the various techniques of printed illustration preceding. This was also a time when Scotland had achieved a certain ascendency, with its eighteenth century Enlightenment having dispelled its courser stereotype from earlier times of clan strife. Both quarto volumes, each measuring almost 11 inches by 9 inches, are very tight with strong and very handsome modern bindings. The pages have age toning but are generally clean with only the lightest of occasional foxing, and same with the gorgeous plates. There is the typical offsetting of the plates onto the opposite pages. The plates capture the rural and pastoral so effectively that they come off to us like out of a dream. This is a bygone world that in our age we can only fantasize. Photo(s) available upon request. Bookseller Inventory # 000074

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.
