About This Item

London: B.T. Batsford, 1900. First edition. Hardcover. Fair. 1900, First edition. Hardcover, green cloth. Complete with 100 b&w plates. Book measures 7.5 x 9.5 inches. Bookplate on the front pastedown of John Seymour Lucas, RA, the British painter and costume designer. Additionally, there is a handwritten note in blue pencil on the half-title that reads "Presented by H.R.H. Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll / J. Seymour Lucas, Xmass 1901." Princess Louise was the sixth child of Queen Victoria. We are not sure if the note is in the Princess' hand, or Lucas', or perhaps someone else entirely. Overall this is only a reading copy or candidate for rebinding. The plates and pages are clean and unmarked, but all are LOOSE from the binding. Front board present, but also loose. Spine cloth also present but detached. A nice book with interesting provenance, but certainly in need of rebinding.
