Medium-green buckram binding, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering and design to the front board and to the spine. Moderately bumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. Hinges tender but holding very nicely. Top, fore- and bottom edges of the text block deckled to a very handsome effect. With xxxv and 419 numbered pages. Color frontispiece and with XLIX full-page plates, most in duo-tone. Plates generally in excellent condition and many with pristine tissue guards. Also with 84 B&W figures representing porcelain marks. Foxing along the top, fore- and bottom page edges but generally not onto the pages themselves.
