1 Various Writers; Illustrated By Thomas Crane and Ellen Houghton Abroad
London Marcus Ward & Co. 1882 First Edition Hardcover Good Crane, Thomas & Houghton, Ellen 
This is an original copy of a book that was re-printed in the 1980s. Beautiful chromolithograph illustrations on the cover (see photograph) 11 full page chromos inside. In addition, the majority of the other pages have have quarter or half size chromos and the few remaining have stylised illuminations around the page. The quality and nature of the Thomas Crane illustration are very much of their day, with similar colouring and impression to his contempories such as Walter Crane (his brother) and Kate Greenaway. 56 pages. Size: 22 cm x 19 cm. Subject matter takes in a tour around France and the illustrations provide a very good depiction of Victorian times. You can see a good selection of the illustrations at the following web address which will reflect them better than my words could. This was written as a companion volume to London Town, a copy of which I also have for sale, and At Home. Specific Condition: Binding: Corners worn and edges, top / bottom of spine rubbed. Couple of small holes in backstrip. There is a slight bubble under the front paste down cover and a small surface tear to the front (see photo) and another to the rear. Front hinge starting to crack, rear is O.K. Internal: Some browning to prelims otherwise internally very good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
