Text Volume. 352 pp. with a study of the texts by Arthur Amiaud, with 52 pages of line drawings; Plate Volume. 62 plates of extremely high quality photographs and 3 plans. A letter dated September 29, 1909 accompanies the book which explains the status of plates as they relate to finished copies that have been included. All volumes are beautifully rebound in full leather with ribbed spine and gilded lettering. Cover very new, but faded on the front to varying degrees. Internally, pages very nice with original cover for the plate volume retained. A very handsome set of this rare and important early work. A very large, magnificent and important work on this subject, extremely rare, perhaps the only example for sale outside of a private library or museum? Ex Libris, Joel L Malter.
