These are quite a rare find, and in decent shape for their age. The paper has yellowed and the binders have seen a lot of use. The colour plates are exquisite, as are the black and white drawings/photo's. This is a collectors dream, as I have not seen anything quite like these books or their bindings
They are a bit unique in that all the interior pages are loose leaf held in place by a metal "spine" and protected by thick hard covers with marbleized end pages.
Photo's are generic from my listing of all 6 books
Because of the age time has discoloured the pages...but it is still a wonderful book of yesteryear 29
