Published c. 1898-1905, Stockholm by Plansch & Litterature Aktiebolaget.
71 pages plus profusion of 35 tipped on plates. Text in Swedish. Profusely illustrated throughout, including b&w, 21 chromolithographed plates and offset color plates (collate complete).
Publisher's oblong illustrated pictorial color cloth binding, gilt title lettering.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, lightly shaken, couple plates loose, small knock/ cloth split at spine base, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is clean, internally well preserved, couple plates with small "adhesion" pulls from facing plate, any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention.
Still very attractive on the shelf. Item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
