London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1908. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. An essentially Fine copy of the first edition, first printing in the publisher's original light blue cloth with the spine lettered in gilt, the front board lettered and decorated in gilt, and the closed page block's top edge in gilt as well. The front board shows an elevation to its right lower leading corner and the rear board a small push to the top edge. There is offsetting to the pastedowns and adjoining free endpapers and some foxing to the closed page block's leading and bottom edges. The volume wears the SCARCE scarce dust jacket which bears some wrinkling to the front panel's upper right and some general edge wear with some small chips. Within there are found fifty full-page plates. The book contains information on such prints as well as "Detailed descriptions of the most important French engravings executed in the XVIIIth century". Copies of the first edition are rather uncommon, copies in a condition as nice as is this copy are quite so, and copies in the dust jacket, especially when in a condition as nice as is this copy, are EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE INDEED. Fine / very good +. Item #2796
