Later Renaissance Architecture In England: A Series of Examples of the Domestic Buildings Erected Subsequent to the Elizabethan Period

London: B. T. Batsford, 1897 onward. Original, in parts. Hardbound. Six blue portfolios with printed text covers, cloth spines, with various contents. In all: xxi, 116 pp. text with 153 figures within the text and 168 of a possible 171 indicated plates (three sequential plates lacking: 101, 126 and 149). VG- overall, some isolated soiling to edges of sheets, very minor tears rarely. Item #26971

A very nice, very presentable set of this classic. The sub-title calls for 170 plates. Index and sequential plate numbering end at 165; there are 6 "extra" plates, as follows: 15*, 70*, 122*, 132*, 137* and a duplicate plate numbered 152 (two different plates being numbered 152). All plate numbers are in Roman Numerals. I don't believe all the pages and plates are in their original portfolios, but all pages of text are here, along with two title pages dated 1901 (in case the subscriber wished to have the pages bound into 2 volumes, as it was later issued in.) Actually quite nice to have in portfolio form due to the large size of the pages and plates (14.2" x 19.1") and the weight. Postage will be significant on this set.
