About This Item

London, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin: Blackie & Son, 1886. Original. Unbound. Good. Nice, large format chromolithographed plate from Blackie's "The Comprehensive Atlas and Geography of the World" (1886). These particular plates are one of the points that makes this atlas so attractive and desirable. I salvaged these prints and maps from a broken and incomplete atlas, going against my normal policy of refusing to remove artwork from books. In this case, the book was beyond reasonable help, in my opinion. Details of the illustration are: Shepard of Arcadia in Holiday Dress, Peasant--environs of Athens in Holiday Dress, Woman of Trikeri in Thessaly Woman and Child--Island of Hydra, Man and Woman--Island of Crete. Condition: Good: Smudging to the lower printed border - noticeable but not rising into the picture of the people, and overall some minor wear to edges. Small tear to right margin. Overall, clean and very nice colors. Jagged edge where it was removed from binding. Paper size is approximately 11.75 by 14.75 inches (30 x 37.5 cm). The sheet was too large to get a good quality picture that still included the entire sheet, so it is a little washed out and fuzzy. Please request detailed close up scans, more pictures or information if needed.
