Seller ID:   000578

Not dated, c. 1880. Twelve full page full colour Kronheim plates of pets from the home and country side (birds such as magpie, dove, swan; a fawn, lamb, cow, dogs, horse, rabbit etc). Supporting story text. It would appear that this is a compilation of two previously issued London Toy Books published by Warne: numbers 15 and 51. Each page is mounted on linen and printed on one side only with a blank page guard before each plate. Although now suffering damage the binding is very attractive with black and gilt embossed decoration with a laid down chromolithographic plate; blind embossing to lower board.Specific condition: Binding: Overall wear and staining to both boards; ffep missing and left edge of title page has been fixed to the front paste down end paper. The binding appears to be reasonably tight but it looks like someone might have reinforced it with glue at some point. Interior: Browning to the linen backs of several pages but the Kronheims themselves are in quite good condition. Some fraying to linen edges. Please note that due to the size of my scanner the photo does not show all of the front cover. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall.
