By Perrot, Georges and Charles Chipiez

London: Chapman and Hall, Limited, 1892. Hardcover. Good plates, all present, find our accounting below; xii, 508p., illustrations as called for; hardbound in 10.5x6.5 inch bluegreen cloth boards spine-titled gilt and decorated in grey and black. Ex library, with an inoffensive bookplate on pastedown and no other markings; both hinges cracked, uglyfied but holding, edgewear to casing. Textblock gapes slightly along several gutters, and two such spots have been strengthened (successfully) with fabric document-tape at p.176/7 and 192/3. A reasonably good, better-than-"reading copy", shall we say fair to good-only. Plates (fullpage and folded ones together) tally according to the printed list of XII in preliminaries, these are located properly and and are all in remarkably good shape save for a stained margin at p.292. Expect four in color, five in steel, and three folded ones in steel; a number of these are artists' renderings what the buildings might have looked like.
