Mornings in Florence being Simple Studies of Christian Art for English Travellers
[ nd ]·New York
by [ Photographically Illustrated Books ] Ruskin, John, L.L.D.
New York: [ np ], [ nd ]. Later printing. Vellum. Very Good. Later printing. 125 pages. 3/4 vellum over papered boards. EXTRA ILLUSTRATED with 24 albumen photographs on card stock inserted periodically throughout the book. With binder's ticket of Alfonso Dori Book-Binder "Bindings in Florentine Vellum" with an address in Florence, on the rear pastedown endpaper. Rather unsightly fleur-d-lis decal affixed to front panel vellum spine portion. Ink stain. Spine profusely decorated in gilt. Red silk bookmark ribbon. A nice production. Vellum overall with light soiling. Clean internally, paper lightly browned and with photographs faded (probably due to lack of tissues). Vellum. Undated, but we'd date this circa 1900 based on the Ruskin being an obvious reprint, and the binding style. A representative example of this type of gift book.
