Old Houses in Edinburgh, Bruce J. Home, 1907.
Old Houses in Edinburgh, Bruce J. Home, 1905-1907.
This volume combines the first and second series of these beautiful prints of Old Houses of Edinburgh. 1st edition.
Drawn by Bruce J. Home and published at John Knox's House, by William J Hay in Edinburgh. We think the second series of prints was only published in 1907, so this combined volume is likely to have been produced in that year.
A very good copy overall. Large format hardback - 38.7cm high x 29.5cm wide x 4cm deep. Green cloth with gilt Edinburgh motifs to front. Quarter Leather spine in black with gold lettering. Green cloth has some soiling (see photos) and spine is worn at the top (also shown in photos). Binding is completely sound.
Text is in fine condition throughout. Very clean indeed. Foxing to free endpapers and very minor spotting to extremities but a really lovely volume of prints overall. The standard of illustration and printing is excellent. Paper is a quality thick stock.
Contains 54 tipped in illustration plates and accompanying text for each.
Weighs approximately 2.7kg unpacked.
