Balance of title from title page, "Lathing, Plastering and Tiling, Common Brickwork, Ornamental Brickwork and Terra Cotta, Lighting Fixtures, Use and Design Of Lighting Fixtures, Architectural Design. International Textbook Co #31B, 1909 only date given. No additional printings, so first edition seems possible, binding looks correct for '09. 3/4 bound in leather (spine and diagonals for tips) balance cloth. First and last gutters have interior cloth reinforcement, perhaps from the bindery as it matches (roughly) the outside cloth. Perhaps the finest illustrated content in our inventory, lush color, b&w, complex and astonishingly thorough, The books exterior has held up nicely (foto will follow shortly) not, however without the odd scratch and bump. Texts edges are stained in deep red all round. The sole notable structural flaw is a hyper extended opening at the second to last gutter, as though book was opened too far, causing a separation at the gutter, binding holding, but, the bindery glue can be seen top to bottom, actual separation fairly minimal. There is penned note on an adjacent endsheet, text seems otherwise unmarked.This book is thick and heavy, domestic media mail shipping at our usual one book price. International and fast shipping are priced for flat rate envelope, this one won't fit. . .Surcharge needed. Book will now be stored in acid free bag. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
