About this Item

Very Good. Elephant Folio, 18 1/2" x 14 5/8". 12 pp. of text which include vignette illus. on title pg, another large oval illus. and two text illus., plus 37 plates. The dark green cloth has dec. gilt-stamping on front, with spine letters reversed in gilt; olive green eps, a.e.g. Condition: corners bumped and extremities worn, with raw places sealed a bit amateurishly, but not bad looking.The all-original cover is further enhanced with gilt-embossed albatross, and blind dec. paneling. There is some "bubbling" in cloth cover (probably a reaction to the 125-year old glue therein. Back cover, also with blind decorative paneling, shows moderate scuffing and discoloration from the elements and time, but there are NO water stains, coffee cup markins, or any other injurious blemishes. Binding is firm and straight. The front end papers (original) have minor wear, back eps are quite good. Printed pages and plates throughout are Vg to Nf and a pleasure to behold. For an original publication, with no rebacking, rebinding etc.etc., this is a nice copy of an all-time classic. It is one that can be handled, without white gloves, to be enjoyed and treasured for a moderate investment. Additional information upon request. Bookseller Inventory # 1043
