Rare 1912 original 1st edition of Color Standards and Nomenclature by Robert Ridgway. If you would like some more detailed information regarding the history of this book, it was featured on The Antique's Road Show! The video of the appraisal should come up immediately! Hardcover of this piece shows a little bit of very minor age related wear on the front. The spine is still holding the book together just fine with no issues when flipping the pages.
The hardcover on the backside does show a little dirt or discoloring. Please rest assured that the inside pages of the book have not been effected by whatever is on the outside! Inside the book all of the color plates are vibrant and in place, all coming with their wax covers.
A few of the colors might possibly show a very very small amount of tiny tiny dotted discolored spots, as you can see in the photo of the purples. Inside of the book is complete and in overall nice older condition though, with crisp complete pages, and no old musty odors that I noticed. Being over 100 years old, there is always a chance that I might have missed a tiny little something. But if you do see anything I feel confident that it will be quite insignificant, and not really even worth noting...
