1895 A Brief History of Wood-Engraving From Its Invention
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
A near fine copy of this Brief History of Wood-Engraving by Victorian writer Joseph Cundall. In eighteen illustrated chapters, Cundall relates a history of wood-engraving from its invention up through to the late 19th century. Cundall trained as a printer in his youth, and eventually became a publisher of children's books. As well as authoring several children's works under pseudonym Stephen Percy, Cundall was also a pioneer of photography, and was sent to manage the first photographic record of the Bayeux Tapestry 1871.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, smart with a little rubbing to the boards and the spine. Lightly bumped at the head and tail of the spine with marginal wear to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound with bright and clean pages.
