Cupples, Upham & Co., Boston 1883 - Cupples, Upham & Co., Boston, 1883 A beautiful looking, half leather-bound book with five raised bands, marbled boards, and 17 original etchings from artists such as Charles Volkmer, Thomas Moran, Charles Platt, Stephen Parrish, and many others. 39 additional printed images (albertypes and illustrations) accompany the original etchings. Also includes a section titled Various Phases of American Art and features articles from Edward A. Robinson, M. G. Van Renssalaer, and Candace Wheeler to name a few. Book is in Good condition. Binding: Front hinge of the volume is cracking by the base of the spine, and because of this crack several of the pages in the front have also started to separate from the textblock. The remaining leaves are connected firmly to the paper lining. This includes all of the illustrations and etchings. Crack measures close to 2''. Wear is present at the top and bottom of the spine and running the length of the front and back hinge. Corners: All four have rounded with significant wear. Pages: No gift inscriptions, underlining, annotations, or ex-library markings can be detected. A presentation plate is present opposite the illustrated title page. Pages seem to be free of foxing and stains. Etchings look incredible. Boards: Front board has dulled in color around the top edge but the bottom section and the entire back side retain good color. Wear is present to just about every inch of the board edges. Leather is also rubbed along the edges (and at the back, bottom corner) but looks good overall. DJ: No Jacket. This is a very unique collector's piece that would make a fantastic addition to your art library. It's very uncommon and perfect for fans of vintage books, art, or both. Location: Office/3rd Shelf Thank you for your consideration! [Attributes: Hard Cover]
