About this Item

Oblong, 18.5 by 21.5 cm. Hand-colored engraved title, followed by 16 hand-colored plates, one of which is folding. Based on the Reverend James Beresford’s "The Miseries of Human Life", published in 1806 by Miller. (The same work inspired publisher Rudolph Ackermann and artist Thomas Rowlandson as well.) Each plate accompanied by a facing letterpress page of description. Abbey 259. WIth original boards and printed label. Dampstain covering much of label and touching on the surrounding board paper pastedown, which has a moderate amount of other soiling too. The dampstain is heavy for small area of label, but none of the type is unreadable. Also a small finger-scrape hole of the label, again not affecting its content materially. A few light stains and finger smudges of the interior leaves, but overall these come off as crisp and clean. Bookseller Inventory # 004432

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.
