Book Condition: Very Good
The first 39 years of The Art Journal, all uniformly and handsomely in red half morocco, pebbled cloth boards, gilded title on front boards and gilded lettering on spine. Raised bands. A continuous run of the publication, which was the leading British review of goings-on in the art and decorative arts world of the day, and remains an invaluable source about countless topics relating to these areas. 4to. 33 by 26 cm. Condition: there can be scuffs and rubbing on the bindings, but collectively, they remain very attractive and probably as nice as one can hope to find nowadays, whether in commerce, where such continuous runs are seldom on offer, or in institutional homes. Interiors are complete and generally clean. Each of the volumes, by itself, is extra heavy, weighing 7 pounds or more, and so the set, weighing somewhere between 250 and 300 lbs., will obviously cost far more than rates quoted automatically on various websites, whether Media, Priority, or another service.
