Item specifics

Binding: Leather Special Attributes: Illustrated
Subject: Illustrated Origin: American

Leaflets of Memory. Title page missing. But his has the original embossed red morroco leather boards with gold lettering and design.  c1850s. With 12 near mint color lithographic illustrations done by Rosenthal one of the pioneer color lithographers. There are 11 bird plates and 1 botanical. A compilation of poems, short stories, etc. Includes work by J J Audubon ( 2 - Grossbeak & Thrush) , Mrs Browning (A Child Asleep), Ralph Waldo Emerson, ( Good-Bye), Shakespeare (Lark), Richard H Stoddard (Departed Youth), and others. BUT- there are 12 wonderful full color chromolithographic plates. This was the first year the publisher used the color plates instead the usual steel engravings. ( From the preface). The plates were executed by L N Rosenthal. Rosenthal was one of the pioneer color lithographers and went on to produce incredible color plates of the civil war. All 12 plates are present, but a few tissue guards are missing or folded.

The leather boards are in pretty good condition. The title page is not present but there is a pencil inscription dated 1860. A few pages in the back show some heavy edge wear. Some very light foxing throughout. hard to say how the book got into this condition, but it is what it is.

The 12 plates alone, framed in nice period frames, would easily sell for $25.00 + each.
