What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Limited Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce

Limited edition, numbered 178 of 250 copies. This work is printed on Whatman's Antique Paper.  Hand-numbered to the edition page which explains the entire imprint of this work. 

A scarce publication.

An unusually bright copy of this work. 

With twenty-four subjects total, including some buildings no longer standing in this historic city. One example of a grand building no longer standing is Nassau Grove, which stood on Orange Grove. Orange Grove, and the house were named after the Prince of Orange's visit. The name of the house was given long after the Prince's visit, due to rumours that he once resided there.  It was demolished in 1900 to make way for a hotel. 

Other locations include Bath Abbey, Beau Nash's House, Prior Park Mansion, Pulteney Bridge, North Parade Bridge,

Condition

In the publisher's original quarter calf binding, with cloth covered boards. Externally, very smart. Light fading to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with just the occasional light scattered spot.
