About this Item

Folio. Large paper edition. 34 by 25 cm. Etched title, followed by 24 etched plates of anthropomorphic monkeys, acting out scenes from Shakespeare or illustrating lines from Cowper, Dryden and others. Thomas Landseer was the brother of the more famous Sir Edwin Landseer and was best known for making many fine engravings of his brother's work. "Monkey-ana" is one of the few works he engraved from his own designs. These designs are as full of spirit, originality, whimsy and mastery as anything by Sir Edwin. On china paper mounted on wove rag. The work was originally issued in six parts of four etchings each, and the six original wrapper covers are bound in at the end. These wrapper covers are lightly foxed. Otherwise, the plates are crisp and clean, with only the most occasional, light finger smudging on an margin edge. One plate cut slightly shorter than the rest. Bound in contemporary half red morocco. Marbled paper boards. Light wear to the binding. Bookseller Inventory # 003758

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.
