Description:
London: George Rowney & Co. 14th Edition . Limp Cloth. Very Good. 12mo. The limp green cloth covers show some wear, a mark on back, tendency to dog-ear. The sewn binding has held together well, several color plates, lightly taped in by careful owner. Fascinating period piece from the early 20th century, complete with 20pp illustrated artists' supplies - from an era that loved ingenious gadgets. The basic color information holds good today, and is exemplified by reference to various well known paintings.
