Item description

northwestbookbuyer Store National Portrait Gallery of Eminent Americans - by Evert A. Duyckinck 150 Portrait illustrations! Contents: Two Volume Quarto Set of National Portrait Gallery of Eminent Americans: Including (152 Illustrations of) Orators, Statesmen, Naval and Military Heroes, Jurists, Authors, Etc., Etc., from Original Full Length Paintings by Alonzo Chappel with Biographical and Historical Narratives, by Evert A. Duyckinck. Book Description: New York: Johnson, Fry Company, 1862; two volumes, 616 pages 598 pages respectively, quarter leather with marbled boards, five raised spine bands as well as gilt spine lettering, 4to (9" x 11"). All edges marbled. The set presented here is in about good condition, with conditions noted: some noticeable wear to the leather on both volumes, especially on raised bands and bumped corners, and mild rubbing to the boards of each as well. Volume one's spine is torn between the first and third band, 3/4 the way thru, from back to front, and near the fifth band, 1/2 way thru. Chipped and frayed leather on spine's head and tail. Front covers detached on both volumes, but present. (Reattaching would be simple, as the joints (where the cover meets the spine) still have a tight fit.) The binding is tight on each volume, with minimal off-setting of the engravings, confined mostly to the protective tissue adjacent to each illustration. Maybe 40% of illustrations have protective tissue - other 60% are missing their tissue. Illustrated frontispiece of Washington and endpaper (Vol 1) torn thru top 1/4 and parts missing. Also corner damp staining to first 20 pages of volume one. Overall, the text shows scattered foxing in small areas, but is overall very clean. This set of National Portrait Gallery of Eminent Americans is a real feast for both the mind and the eye for any fan and/or collector of American history. Evert A. Duyckinck was a prolific editor of historical American reference works in the mid 19th century, and this National Portrait Gallery collection is among his best and most favored works. Contained herein are over 150 striking steel engravings of various famous American historical personages plus brief biographical sketches by Duyckinck.

This is my policy for books over 100 - and only serves to protect the consumer (you) and your investment. Also note the total book weight is just over 13 lbs. for both volumes, which is a reason the shipping on these volumes is expensive.
