HOLLAND AND ITS PEOPLE.
New York & London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1885. - Quarto. Publisher's mauve cloth, heavily decorated in gilt and blind, untrimmed. Plates and illustrations. Minor speckling to the cloth sizing at the extreme foretips, some foxing early and late and occasionally to a few margins of plates, institutional bookplate on pastedown, otherwise about fine and bright, in faintly hand-smudged printed dust jacket with some offsetting to the lower panel from the rather battered publisher's box. The "Zuyder-Zee Edition," limited to 600 numbered copies, of which this is one of 250 copies on untrimmed Linen paper. However, this copy is at variance with the colophon, in that it is accompanied by the extra suite of ten mounted etchings specially printed on satin that was to accompany the first 25 copies, rather than the two sets of ordinary impressions associated with this middle issue. The corners of the mats are a bit bumped and worn, and one of the etchings is a bit foxed, otherwise the suite is in very good order, in the chipped remnants of the original printed paper wrapper (also bearing a bookplate). This deluxe edition features original etchings (some in Japon proof state) by, and photogravures after, the likes of Pennell, Gifford, Vanderhoof, Colman, et al. The jacket is not among those selected examples of 19th century jackets cited by Tanselle.
