Two volumes bound in one. 207, 224 pages. Text in Dutch. Illustrated with 32 engraved plates, plus engraved half title (complete).
Old 1/4 leather binding, raised bands, gilt title lettering, paper covered boards, deckled edges.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, leather rubbed but still supple, head of spine chipped as seen, joints slightly scuffed, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, some plates with darker toning, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
