Prices are printed on most of the specimens. LACKING 3 leaves of base tints (Teinte pour Fonds) which have been removed. Occasional foxing, mostly on preliminary leaves. Publisher's beveled cloth printed in black and gold. Front hinge strengthened, cloth worn along all extremities. The specimens are mostly fine and handsome. A very uncommon trade catalogue of inks designed especially for printing illustrated books. Every copy located is different, with varying number of leaves. As some of the specimens are mounted on stubs, this may account for some of the difference. One copy has a 4-page price list; another has a Preface. The copy at Delaware has 56 leaves; Harvard's has 67 leaves. The Yale copy has the following Teinte pour Fonds: 101-108, a second 107, 110, 111, 112. Our copy lacks 103, 111, & 112. From the Cornelius Hauch collection.
