1 53 Gezigten van Steden, Kerken, Gebouwen, &c. in de Vereen: Nederlanden: In't Koper gesneden door J.C. Philips. Naar de Teekeningen van C. Pronk, J. de Beyer, A. de Haen, &c.
Amsterdam Is. Firion 1730-1756 Small hardcover folio. Very Good Minus 
8vo. 21 by 15.5 cm. Virtually all the 53 copper engraved plates are folding, most about 25 cm wide but some as much as 48 cm wide (two folds versus four folds, with just a few that are smaller than the former). The city and church views are of Amsterdam, Middelburg, Utrecht, Arnhem, Haarlem, Graerenhagen, Rotterdam, Zierikzee, and many other Dutch towns. All together the folio makes for a glorious snapshot of how the thriving Dutch Republic looked in the mid-18th century. The collection also has an element of manuscript, with a handwritten, in ink, title page and table of contents. The plates were engraved printings, but the collection was assembled as a one off. From the handwriting, the collection was surely assembled by the mid-19th century, and the folio has kept the collection intact and heightened its appeal. There is sometimes heavy foxing in the margins. The images themselves remain vivid and mostly unaffected by the foxing. The plates are bound with a 19th century marbled paper. Its spine is shot. The outer folio has the same marbled paper on the boards, with a more recent cloth on the spine. The spine is utilitarian and neither adds nor subtracts from the appearance. Pasted within the front board is a bookplate. The "book" itself has a small label on the rear cover from a book dealer in Antwerp from 1957.

St. Paul, Minnesota W. C. Riley Third Edition (30,000) Cloth Very Good 
N.d., late 19th century. Oblong, 16 by 24 cm. A leporello with 30 panels, full of views of the sights, urban and natural scenery, with a variety of lay-outs per page, with sometimes a single image, other times, several, arranged horizontally and vertically, etc. The printing of the illustrations used a photo lithographic process, and the leaves have a glossiness to them, with here and there arts and crafts period floral decoration in the margins. The boards have mild warping, with cloth loss on the spine. Interior-wise, mostly clean and fresh.

Versailles et Trianon
3 Versailles et Trianon
Paris Imprimerie Lemercier et Cie. Hautecoeur freres, Martinet Cloth Very Good 
Oblong, 26 by 17 cm, 10 by 6.75 inches. With sixteen hand-colored views of the main palace, its grounds and fountains, and the Trianons. With no title other than that which is on the binding, this is a collection of views that were either assembled by the tourist and then bound, as was done then, or more likely, bound with some randomness by the souvenir shop. This can be inferred by the views bearing numbers but not having any particular order in this album. In any event, the pictures are delightful. Other than a very occasional fox mark in the margins, the plates are clean. The red cloth is faded, with soiling along the hinge and scattered elsewhere. Minor repairs to the hinge.
