Book Condition: Near Fine


Ivory stiff paper portfolio, French flaps, lettered in brown. Text block is as issued, in 8-page signatures/gatherings, unbound. Unpaginated. [xxiv] pp. (introductory), 102 catalogued examples, [xxviii] pp. of appendices, colophon, etc. at rear., illus. w/ 5 full page color plates (1 with acetate overlay). The final two gatherings appear to be errata/corrigenda, showing both the orginal error and the corrected text in two columns. We would have expected more than 5 plates in this publication, but given that the plates are printed as part of the gatherings, not inserted, it is highly unlikely that this copy lacks any plates that may have originally accompanied. Portfolio sleeve shows minor soiling and approx. 1/2" closed tear at top of front and rear joints, thus VG; interior basically as issued, Near Fine/Fine. Scarce.
