Beauties of English Landscape

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A volume of drawings by Birket Foster, engraved by various engravers, each accompanied by a poem by authors such as Wordsworth and Coleridge. Birket Foster was a well known artist and illustrator in the Victorian period and, although sentimentalised, his pictures of landscapes were well thought of.
The boards, although in somewhat distressed condition, can be seen to have had a beautiful binding of green with gilt and black designs and lettering. The front cover is detached from the book, the spine is only attached at the back. There is a neat ink gift inscription, dated 1874, on the false title page; there is also evidence of water staining to the lower edges of many pages, also foxing speckles here and there, and age toning throughout. Text block edges retain their gilt, the engravings are delightful and most would make an appealing framed picture.
