New York, NY: Cassell, 1880. Art. Not Bound. Very Good. Item #028142

10 loose art-plates; printed in colors; in the original printed envelope and collated complete with all ten plates. Including: Calton Hill and King's Park; Cranton Pier from the Breakwater; Wreck of the "White Bear"; Peterstown; Holyrood Palace and Arthur Seat; Harford Yettes; The Elfin Kirk; John MacBeth's Cottage; Manse of Ballenfold and Ley Grange. No publisher, place or date noted; our research indicates that these may have been printed by Cassell publishers NY circa 1880. Their 19th century printings included the 'Gems of Art' magazine which had occasional color plates; these may have also been available for single image purchase, as here. Each chromo is titled below and gives a volume reference and page number as well. Approx. 5 1/2" x 8" size, overall, slight wear. Envelope with closed tears, dustiness; images in very good condition.
