Italian Villas and Their Gardens
New York: Century. 1904. First. First edition. Illustrated by Maxfield Parrish. Nineteen of the original twenty-six Parrish illustrations have been neatly excised, a bit cocked and some wear to the spinal extremities, otherwise a sound, very good copy. Illustrator Maxfield Parrish's own copy, Signed by him in his beautiful and idiosyncratic hand on the front fly: "Maxfield Parrish: from The Century Company: 1904." Beneath this is an unsigned note by the artist's son, Maxfield Parrish, Jr.: "Unfortunately dad cut out many of the colored prints of the best villas from this book." It was Parrish's custom to remove most of the prints from his copies of his books to be pasted into a "master" scrapbook, and such was the fate of this volume. Included with this volume is a copy of the second edition of this title, with all of the plates removed by the artist. .
