Very good condition
These prints were originally offered as loose plates in wrappers. Someone had them carefully and professionally bound in this deluxe burgundy leather hardcover book. The book is of very high quality – a pleasure to hold and look through.
The black and white plates would reproduce well and are just asking to be hand-colored with watercolors – or indulge and make this splendid book even more beautiful by adding watercolors directly to the plates. This would make a very special gift indeed!
