About this Item

Copy has slight rubbing on the tips of corners and edges of spine, small faint stain on bottom (with only a slight variation of color), when turned at an angle the deep green binding has slight dulling in some areas - this is minor. Gold lettering on spine is clean and bright, gilt top bright, bevel edges, binding is tight, hinges fine, straight and clean, endpieces unmarked, gutters intact, paper is not brittle and has only the slightest toning, appears to have had very little wear - especially for its age . Rare two volumes in one edition - there is no other date of printing or copyright listed, appears to be a First Edition as the date 1885 is given on the Title Pages. Vol I: Foundations -431pp; Vol II: Sea Stories - 396pp a total of 827pp. Reads like wonderfully descriptive literature, the descriptions go deeply into the philosophy and symbolism of architecture. Illustrated with some very lovely chromolithographs, mezzotints, b/w reproductions, intext figures, wonderful displays of architectural detailing and elements. Extensive section on Gothic architecture with a special chapter on Gothic Palaces. Rare, very good+ to Near Fine copy. 396pp. Collectible!. Bookseller Inventory # 000702

Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
