All three issues bound together in Library Hardcovers, red cloth covered boards, titled in gilt on the spine, 9x12 inches, unpaginated (though small page numbers have been handwritten at the bottom of many pages), approximately 130 pages each. Again, the complete issues are bound in, including front and rear covers, and all called for original lithographs.
EX-LIBRARY (deaccessioned from the Lambeth Public Library, near London, England), with library hardcovers, gilt shelving number on spine, library bookplate on
the front pastedown and on the inside front cover of the first issue, library stamps on all title pages, and library stamps here and there throughout. The Library bookplate states that the volume was kept in the Reference Library and it was not to be taken out of the Reference area, meaning it probably spent its life undisturbed on a shelf. Someone, perhaps a librarian, neatly hand numbered many of the unnumbered pages at the bottom where one would normally find printed page numbers.
MOST IMPORTANT TO NOTE is that there is a red "Lambeth Public Libraries" stamped discreetly at the bottom of the lithographs. The stamp is very difficult to see on the MAX ERNST lithograph (closely examine the bottom left edge of the Max Ernst lithograph), and I actually do not see one on the Vieira Da Silva but will assume one is there hidden away. There is also a library stamp below or above many of the other illustrations. The stamp on the lithographs really is not too disturbing, often only partially visible, but it IS present (please see photos). Ex library aside, the covers and both of the bound in issues are in Very Good condition, tight, bright, clean and clear. The original lithographs are all bright and gorgeous.
RARE BOUND SET of THREE ISSUES with ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPHS and HUNDREDS of ILLUSTRATIONS.
