20 pages total, (16 pp. plus paper wrappers). Text in English. Illustrated throughout with 16 full page color lithographs plus color litho covers.
Publisher's illustrated paper wrappers, oblong format. Very scarce 19th century ephemeral color lithographed promotional item.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, joints slightly scuffed, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, short edge splits to some pages, covers with some edge chipping, spine neatly repaired long ago with thread, internally still very appealing.
Still attractive on the shelf. Booklet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this rare pictorial item survives.
