About this Item

Large 4to. 30 by 25 cm. With 21 hand-colored plates including allegorical frontis plate watermarked 1811 with the names of Maaskamp and Colnaghi & Co. of London. (The title gives publication date of 1808, as is also embossed in gilt on spine foot, but given watermarking, this copy should be viewed as the second edition (the first was issued in 1803) and the first edition issued in English.) Plates engraved by Portman after paintings of J. Kuyper. Colas 1681. Hiler 557. The plates stand out among so many others of the same era for their depiction of people doing things. These are truly genre scenes, as opposed to static costume poses, and they thus deliver visual information about aspects of the livelihood,custom and culture of the Dutch. Foxing of preliminaries and final leaves, with some scattered foxing elsewhere, affecting mostly text pages. Most of the plates are clean or have the lightest of marginal foxing. Joints rubbed.

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.
