Sketching from Nature in Water Colours

Sketching from Nature in Water Colours

London: Cassell, Petter, Galpin and Co., circa 1870.

A scarce work on the techniques of watercolour, and of considerable interest for the background that it provides on nineteenth-century art, especially its topographical aspects. The book is also a good example of chromolithographic printing of the period.

Item #256

Small folio, original gilt-lettered blue cloth, all edges gilt, colour frontispiece, decorated title page, 13 chromolithograph colour plates and an additional single uncoloured plate, with light scattered foxing and an old prize bookplate, in excellent condition generally.

Price (AUD): $350.00  other currencies
