About This Item

Edinburgh: Thomas C. Jack, 1880. 2nd edition. Hardcover. Orig. three quarter black morocco and dark green cloth. Very good. 126 pages in text. Folio, 35 x 28 cm. Fifty-nine plates, including four three dimensional card board models [pop-ups], and lithographic illustration, "Dignity of Mechanic Art." Earlier edition contained 58 plates. HITCHCOCK 1007. Noting the American edition, 1874. KARPEL B275. "Of particular interest because of the numerous cardboard flaps..." -- again discussing the American edition. Riddell taught High School in Philadelphia, and though presumably an American, his books about building technology were reprinted in England -- unusual at the time. Internally quite clean; text and plates. calligraphic inscription of Joiner, Hugh Williams, Llangaffo (Wales), dated 7th Oct. 1880, free front endpaper. Slight puckering front cover cloth, modest scratches back cover.
