Unknown: Unknown, 1890. This is a large-format Salesman's Sample Book for a profusely-illustrated compendium by the prolific James W. Buel (1849-1920). The cover is red leather, with embossed scenes from Africa. The sample pages reproduce numerous black-and-white illustrations. There are four spectacular color illustrations as well. Interleaved are statements and descriptions by the publisher on pink paper. The publisher is not named, nor is a publication date; 1890 would be a good guess, and Quercus ascribes to that. The subscription pages are blank; the rear cover is a sample of the red cloth version available. Rubbing and chipping to the corners and the spine has perished; nonetheless, a fascinating look into publishing history. Size: 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.

Price = 75.00 USD
