About this Item

2 volumes in one. 12mo (4.75 by 3", 12 by 7 cm), [4], 240, [20], [4], 216, [26] pp. Above all else, this is a beautifully painted vellum binding in the style of the Edwards of Halifax, a family of bookbinders in the late 18th century who developed a process of producing painting on vellum or parchment. The painting would actually lie under the surface, giving it a greater permanence as well as a subtle glassy aura. On the front of this particular binding is a lady, in late Georgian attire, playing an organ with a cherub at her side and a lute at her feet. The rear board has a tinted illustration of a castle in a park-like setting. The spine is divided into five compartments, four of which have a lyre ornament. Gilt ornamental borders and other detail work add further refinement to the binding. This comes with a brown levant gilt folding case, shaped like book, octavo in size, and with plush interior with resting compartment for book itself, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The joints of the book are partly cracked. The first title page has some light soilage. There is a small tear, partially repaired, on pp 1/2 of the second work. The vellum has light soilage and wear. The box has rubbed front joint and some minor scuffs and rubbing along edges. Notwithstanding these issues, the book remains a highly attractive work of book art. Hand-Painted Vellum; With Full Morocco Box. Bookseller Inventory # 001367

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.
