Winkles's Architectural and Picturesque Illustrations of the Cathedral Churches of England and Wales (3 vols)

£250.00

Product description

Complete set of three volumes, published 1836-1842, of Winkle's guide to British cathedrals. Bound in 3/4 burgundy polished calf over decorative marbled boards with gilt decoration on spine. Spine with 5 compartments of gilt raised bands. Marbled end papers.

The gilt on the spines has faded somewhat and the corners are bumped. There is some foxing of inside pages but the engraved illustrations on India paper are in good condition. All binding is secure. Overall, this set is in good condition for its age.

Vol. 1 Effingham Wilson, Royal Exchange; and Charles Tilt [1836] 144pp.
Vol. 2 Effingham Wilson, Royal Exchange; and Charles Tilt [1838] 140pp.

"The Drawings Made From Sketches Taken Expressly For This Work, By Robert Garland, Architect. With historical and descriptive accounts."

Henry Winkles (1801-1860) was an English architectural illustrator, engraver and printer, who, together with Karl Ludwig Frommel founded the first studio for steel engraving in Germany. In 1836, with Benjamin Winkles, he produced and helped to engrave three volumes of Winkles's architectural and picturesque illustrations of the cathedral churches of England and Wales. This featured illustrators such as Hablot Knight Browne (the famous Phiz of Charles Dickens fame) and architect Robert Garland (1808-1863), with text (and some engraving) by Thomas Moule.

Collectors should be attracted by the keen price and good condition of this set.
