Price : US $31.00
I cant even begin to tell you how many photos i could have taken of this wonderful and informative, not to mention beautiful book.It is one of the many j.w. Buel books of the time. He is known for his many illustrations in each of his books.But none equal the 1500 claimed on binding. Condition is just ok but quite restorable and should be. A full 3.5 inch thick.The gold and silver used to adorn this embossed book makes it unusual and must have been a real eye popper, but alas it has worn with love. Because this was not gold encased all the pages have beyond yellowed and are a paper bag colored brown BUT evenly patinad. This book if carefull is solid once binding is repaired.There are only two colored plates. 722 pages long.Book is very heavy at about 5 lbs. before packing. Dont let this one get away.
