Synopses & Reviews

Description:

Padua, Presso Una Societa Editrice Coi Tipi Della Minerva, 1833, 1834; Coi Tipi Di Angleo Sicca, 1843.

6 folio volumes. 3 text volumes (455x315mm), and 3 oblong plate volumes (320x455mm). Half mottled calf with tree calf over boards. Red morocco title labels.

Volume 1: Costume Antico. Frontis, portrait, 752pp. Plate volume: 100 engraved plates; front hinge cracked but holding strong.

Volume 2: Costume del Medio Evo. Portrait, 804pp. Plate volume: 98 of 100 engraved plates, lacking plates 20 and 80.

Volume 3: Costume Moderno. Portrait, 764pp. Plate volume: 92 engraved plates, 6 handcolored, plate 82 torn.

Overall good condition. Corners are bumped and worn, head and tail of spines shows some chipping. Round cup and liquid stains to calf on 2 plate volumes, ink marks to another. Some marginal foxing.

The first two volumes record the material and physical culture of Europe in the Ancient and Medieval periods featuring clothes, furniture, architecture, transport and weaponry in action scenes, both imaginative and historical, as well as in isolated examples. The final volume expands the view into the Modern period until the time of the Greek War of Independence including the wider world of Africa, Asia, Oceania, Polynesia and the Americas. A rich cultural resource. Jamie McNulty, Powells.com
