The Dore Gallery (Vol II)

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Poor condition volume, suitable for 'breaking' and framing of illustrations only. This collection of works by Gustave Dore contains 250 of his engravings, nicely printed (not tipped-in) with a thin red line border round each. Protective blank pages have ensured their excellent condition. Vol I is also available.

Gustave Dore (1832-1883) was a French artist, printmaker, illustrator and sculptor, who worked primarily with wood engraving. His illustrations adorned classics such as 'The Idylls of the King', 'Paradise Lost', 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', 'Don Quixote', and the works of Lord Byron.

The book is bound in red cloth with gilt and black decoration, gilt titles, and a gilt portrait of Dore in a black-edged roundel with impressed decoration to the front. The covers are badly worn/damaged, but intact. The binding, however, is firm, and there are no loose pages. Back cover is marked 'breakers' in black felt tip pen. This is a heavy volume, so may incur additional postage.
