First Hyalography Edition, original blue cloth elegantly decorated in gilt & black. 8vo, c.pp64 interleaved throughout, some foxing or spotting, mainly at beginning and end, loss of colour to binding along bottom 1.5 cm strip, else a very good copy of a typically fragile cloth-bound 1860s Gift Book. Scarce Edition : and this copy also in an unrecorded binding variant of blue cloth. One of only a few books produced using Hyalography : an explanatory note in the book states how the illustrations were made. Wakeman in Victorian Book Illustration : The Technical Revolution comments : 'The results are impressive, showing fine tones, and it is likely that the process never came into common use simply because more straighforward methods of photomechanical reproduction were becoming available by this time' [Wakeman pp140-42 : who also shows the Palmer illustration]. See Lister : Palmer Catalogue Raisonne : B8 noting also bindings of green or scarlet cloth. Pencil note in this copy states 'unrecorded binding variant in blue cloth'. (Book ref. 8439 )  £ 175.00
