Extremely well preserved because the previous owner hand made a dust jacket for the book and embroidered the title and a floral motif. Jacket has some wear, but no major damage. It is now housed in a heavy weight Mylar plastic protector to keep it in nice shape.Book is bound in full calf leather, decorated with blind and gold stamped design. Illustrated with 225 copper-plates from oil-paintings and drawings. Plates are richly engraved and look absolutely stunning. This is an amazingly well preserved antique book and most likely the finest copy in the world!
