Oversized imperial folio, ca. 62 X 49cm. Pp. (iv), 5, (2) fold-out List of Plates bound at end. Plus 34 leaves of plates, comprising of Chapman's drawings and of photo plates, all printed in collotype on recto only. Hardcover, all leaves, including the letterpress, tipped-in onto paper stubs, bound in the original cloth-backed boards, upper board printed in black, half-title present, decorative device to title-page. A fine copy in excellent condition. ~ The fine collotype plates were printed by Meriden Gravure Co. of Meriden, Connecticut; the letterpress text was printed by Harvard University Printing Office. In Dunham's words, the substance of this volume lies wholly in the plates. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms. N° de ref. de la librería 3347
