About this Item

6-volume set. 8vo. Quarter calf and maroon marbled paper over boards, gilt spines. xx, 394pp; xv, pp. 395-818; xlvii, 461pp; lxxv, 344pp; xvi, 398pp; xv, 462pp. All edges marbled. Sepia-tone frontispieces, numerous line drawings and full-page sepia-tone plates, marbled endpapers. Overall very good. Uniformly tight throughout and internally fine, with just minor edgewear, slightly age toned spines and bumped corners. Handsome later printings of this influential set in a custom binding. "Sacred and Legendary Art" (two volumes) is the 1874 seventh edition, with the first volume "Containing Legends of the Angels and Archangels, the Evangelists, the Apostles, the Doctors of the Church, and St. Mary Magdalene, as Represented in the Fine Arts" and the second volume "Containing the Patron Saints, the Martyrs, the Early Bishops, the Hermits, and the Warrior Saints of Christendom, as Represented in the Fine Arts." The second series is "Legends of the Monastic Orders," and this is the 1872 fifth edition. The third series is "Legends of the Madonna," and this is the 1872 fifth edition. The fourth and final series in "The History of Our Lord" (two volumes) and this is the 1872 third edition, completed after Jameson's death by Lady Eastlake. English writer Jameson (1794-1860) authored many essays and nonfiction works, but this sextette was art history of a sort never before attempted and represents her main claim to fame. From the library of Wisconsin civic leader JAMES M. LYNCH, chief clerk at the Adjutant General's Office during the Civil War, appointed quartermaster general in 1865. This lovely set was bound in the 1870s and saw little use. Bookseller Inventory # 33312
