Heath's Gallery of British Engravings. Volume I.
Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman,
Unpaginated*. The engraved title page is followed by the collection of engravings, each with a blank guard leaf and followed by a page with descriptive text. In some cases the described engravings are absent, apparently never bound in. Here there are 59 engravings, each with its descriptive text, but also the descriptions of 13 engravings which are not present. Includes engravings by J.M.W.Turner, Lawrence, and many by Stanfield, Stephanoff, and others. Contents very clean, one plate having a small tide mark. All edges gilt, in a recent binding of russet cloth, spine titled gilt on a black label. [*the text pages are numbered, but not usefully, with several pages sharing the same number.]
