Teachers' Manual of Free-Hand Drawing and Designing, and Guide to Self-Instruction, Prepared by Walter Smith.
Published 1874, Boston by James R. Osgood and Company.
153 pages plus index. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout with dozens of full page plates.

Attractive antiquarian 1/4 leather binding, smooth spine, pictorial paper covered boards.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. 

Binding age worn but still appealing, leather and joints rubbed but still supple, small split/ chip damage at spine head as seen, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, scattered foxing, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this book as it survives. 

We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.
