WILD FLOWERS 96 Color Plates FINE BINDING Leather Set PRINTS Antique Books RARE
5.75" x 4.75" ea. Printed with ninety-six plates, in full color! Beautiful leather bound two volume set. Decorated with handsome gilt spines, large coat of arms on both front covers, marble dyed page edges and marbled end papers. Books were likely awarded to a student of the school, but there is no award certificate bound in.
Excellent condition, bindings lightly rubbed around edges, leather is still pretty nice for age. Bindings are tight and square; pages are lightly toned on the first few blanks, but the text and plates and still nice and clean.
Binding sewn interestingly--each signature can be seen down to the backstrip, but the pages are all still held together very tightly. The item "WILD FLOWERS 96 Color Plates FINE BINDING Leather Set PRINTS Antique Books RARE" is in sale since Monday, January 30, 2017.
