Picturesque Europe: A Delineation By Pen and Pencil of The Natural Features and the Picturesque and Historical Places of Great Britain and the Continent. Three Volumes
New York: D. Appleton & Company. 1875. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. F First Edition. H Hard Cover. Good. First edition of this three volume set bound in publisher's three quarter green morocco leather over green pebbled cloth, gilt decorative cover lettering, slightly raised spine bands with gilt lettering, compartments ruled in gilt and black, all edges gilt, brick red endpapers, 488 + 460 + 491 pages. With around three hundred engravings per volume, plus accompanying text, this Victorian era set provided those at home to view sights they had never seen before, or perhaps provided a preview to a European trip in the Grand Tour tradition. Covers a little rubbed and scuffed with some minor mottling, a little roughness to one spine end but no chips, spines faded to a warm olive green (covers are a brighter green), spines have some minor and shallow vertical waviness near the center but are not dried, good hinges, sound text blocks with no loosened pages, engraved titles, adjacent tissues and frontis plates a little foxed, small inner margin tear to frontis tissue of volume I, other plates very good with only a few having some light foxing to the margins, pages very clean and free from names or other markings.
