Description:

Unpaged - bound book of approximately 99 b/w plates including pictorial title page. Hardcover: H 25.25cm x L 17cm. Half-leather binding; dark green leather spine, dark paper over boards with dark leather corners. Spine leather decorated with five raised bands delineating six compartments; top compartment's leather (approx. 4cm) missing with underlying brown paper stock exposed; second compartment from top retains still fairly bright gilt lettered title lettering; some splitting at lower joints; boards rubbed with some scuffing/wear at edges and corners. Front hinge tenuous with only one binding cord (of three) still holding; rear hinge broken allowing board and exterior spine leather to pull away from latter's underlying paper backstrip. Text block binding still firm. Light green endpapers; front pastedown's top left corner has small yellow rectangular ticket "Bound by | F.H. Marshall | Rochester, N.Y." with lettering, border, and some decorative scrolls all in black. F.H. Marshall is not cited in AMERICAN SIGNED BINDINGS THROUGH 1876 by Willman Spawn and Thomas E. Kinsella. Toning and foxing to plates (rectos only; blank versos and no guard sheets) with some moisture staining towards rear. Pictorial title page only with neither a publisher nor copyright statement. OCLC locates one copy at Miami University (Ohio) but with their library catalog entry citing 51 leaves only and no mention of bindery ticket. Plates were undoubtedly excised from various contemporary publications and organized by book's original owner who then assigned F.H. Marshall to bind the ensemble in typical mid-19th century gift book style (most likely a mother/grandmother to daughter/granddaughter gift but, unfortunately without an inscription proving that circumstance). Most plates show female subject(s) or a domestic scene and indicate artist and/or engraver. Plates #19, #21-#24, #26 retain printed statements as being from Graham's Magazine, Plate #20 being from Godey's Lady's Book, and at least eighteen plates at rear are from Peterson's Magazine.
