Theory and Practice of Design: An Advanced Text-Book on Decorative Art

£24.99

Product description

This book, published in 1894, was written as a guide to creating decorative designs. The book is complete with seven hundred black and white illustrations. It is bound in turquoise cloth boards with gilt lettering on the covers and spine. The book also has an uncut fore-edge. Condition: there is some mild to moderate marking on the covers, as well as some shelf-wear to the head and tail of the spine. The book’s edges suffer from some minor marking and crinkling. There is a previous owner’s signature (and a date) in pen on the ffep, while there are some residual pieces of an old sticker on the rear paste-down. There is some very mild discolouration to be found throughout the interior pages, but they are generally crisp and clean. The binding is strong.
