Descripción

Tastefully rebound in 1/2 calf, marbled boards, raised bands, gilt to spine, t.e. trimmed and gilt, others untrimmed. Once the library of a bibliophile was not thought complete without examples of the art of grangerizing or privately illustrated books. Many books were robbed of their prints to supply the thousands of illustrations that were necessary at one time to satisfy the demand for volumes of this nature.This work of Tredwell's describes the making, binding and cost of such books with examples as contained in the principal libraries in New York, Boston, Chicago and other cities. The book is supplemented by the inclusion of many interesting and curious facts relating to books in general. It is a useful addition to any collector's library and may be considered a standard work on the subject. 161 pages of wisdom. Enough said of offerings which speak loudly for themselves. Acquire, enjoy, and share what the self-actualized author has discovered in his extensive intellectual travels to prepare this very informative writing for public edification. Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a permanent character lacking in transitory electronic renderings. As always, more photos and/or info will be sent on request. Indeed, these hallowed pages are stoic, self-reliant, certain, sure and competent in their worthiness. By the way, we offer a complimentary service offered by no other rare book vender. Simply give us a phone call or send us an email or a text message after you receive your book and begin to read it.
