Published 1833, London by Charles Tilt. Volume 3 (only, of 3).
c. 120 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout with 40 fine engraved plates, consisting of attractive youthful female portrait plates and scenic views. Engraved plates protected by original tissue guards.

Although the title page says vol. 3, the book is essentially a series of engraved portraits, a fine early 19th century engraved plate book which stands alone.

Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, smooth spine, gilt title lettering & bands, gilt ruled covers.

Volume 3 of a larger set. This volume complete unto itself.

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

Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, 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 it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
