Melodies from Nature Harmonized by William Wordsworth; arranged by Emily Lucas Blackall

Boston: D. Lothrop Co., 1889. Hardcover. xiii, [111] p.: illustrations (photogravures from photographs and drawings, and illustrations by Hiram P. Barnes); 28 cm. Dark green cloth with dark green stamped cover title, and dark green, brown, and silver stamped front cover illustration. Boards have bevelled edges. All page edges silver. Press of Rockwell & Churchill. Frontispiece and 22 leaves of plates are included in page count; page numbers are given in the table of contents and list of illustrations, although the pages are, in fact, not numbered after p. xiii. Inscribed on front free endpaper: "Compliments of the Season Xmas 1889 W.E. Rinzey." When the book was published the reviewer in the American Printer and Lithogapher, Feb. 1890 (vol. 10, p. 36), noted that the cream white, coated paper used was "so heavy as to prove a severe tax upon the binding when the books is opened." The result has been that the pages detach easily from the binding. In Good- Condition: edges lightly rubbed; spine ends and corners fraying; front free endpaper, frontispiece, and several other leaves are detached but present; others are partially detached; fore-edges of a few leaves are chipped and soiled, not impacting illustrations or text; otherwise, pages and plates are clean and bright. Good -. Item #004440
