Vintage A3 folder/book of six reproduction engravings entitled "Views of Richmond, Surrey in the eighteenth century."

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a loosely bound, A3 sized folder of reproduction engravings of Richmond in the eighteenth century. The book/folders was published in the early 1970s (I think) by the Amenities Committee of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The cover is a thick, textured card with the six prints (on very heavy paper) held loosely by a "Pritt" type gum for easy removal. Some have indeed become loose. The first page bears the title, publisher and the words "Reproduced in collotype from the original engravings with descriptive text, by Nicholas Lawrence - Assistant Reference Librarian." Someone has written "From Jill, Christmas 1974" in the top left corner of this page. All six prints are in A3 size and have a separate descriptive page to accompany them. The prints and pages and in very good condition - maybe a little yellower than the day they were made, but no foxing or strong yellow patches. The cover is free of any rips, but is a little faded with a few small stains. Someone has also written a telephone number in biro on the back (!). The white label on the front is foxed. An unusual one this. Have looked all over the internet and only found one reference to a previously sold copy.
